Student Involvement Opportunities
Applications for the below opportunities are posted here online.
Peer Financial Counselors (paid position): APPLY HERE NOW - DEADLINE FEB. 17 5pm
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.

SAB members gain an insider perspective on the missions of Powercat Financial, and are directly involved in the growth of the center and working towards the goal of increasing financial literacy at Kansas State University.

There are a variety of Board positions and involvement available for those not solely focused on financial services, but with interest in gaining experience in other areas such as event planning, advertising, marketing, public speaking, and technology development.

PF SAB is a K-State registered student organization.
