The Community Affairs Committee provides community outreach projects focused on two key areas (1) financial literacy and (2) local community involvement. The financial literacy efforts demonstrated by the chapter are designed to empower youth, college students, and low to moderate income adults with money management skills to increase their awareness of financial options and strategies.
The Committee partners with Junior Achievement, a not-for-profit organization, to deliver a financial education to youth at local DC area schools. The Community Affairs Committee is also responsible for coordinating the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) at Howard University and volunteer assistance with non-profit organizations such as Capital Area Food Bank, Food & Friends Inc., and other community volunteer efforts. The overall goal of this committee is to increase financial literacy within our community and provide members with an opportunity to give back.
There are ongoing volunteering opportunities and various ways to display your talents. If you are interested to in contributing your efforts and time, please contact us for additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
