Student Involvement Opportunities
Applications for the below opportunities are posted here online.
Peer Financial Counselors (paid position):
Students studying to be a financial professional (personal financial planning, business, finance, accounting, economics, agricultural economics) or helping professional (social work, couple & family therapy, family consumer science education) may apply to become a Peer Financial Counselor. Selected students will be hired to complete extensive training, and then work 6-10 hours per week providing individual counseling, financial workshop and financial well-being programming for students. Students applying should demonstrate an interest in increasing the financial well-being of students by sharing knowledge learned through training and course work. This is a position that comes with commitment and responsibility as well as great rewards for counselors along the way. Professionals often comment how beneficial an experience such as being a peer counselor would have been prior to entering the profession, and would be for a potential hire in the financial services, financial planning or counseling field.
Financial Well-being Ambassador (volunteer): Apply Here
Any student may apply to serve as a Financial Well-being Ambassador. The purpose will be to equip students with the knowledge and skills to serve as liaisons and support systems for their peers in the area of financial well-being. These ambassadors will volunteer as an empathetic resource, providing guidance, information, and assistance to individuals in need of financial help and be able to direct a student’s concerns to Powercat Financial. Ambassadors will help educate students on making healthy financial decisions throughout their college career and after graduation by connecting with students to increase financial well-being and literacy in close conjunction with the services of Powercat Financial.
