I've been volunteering as a CPA financial literacy educator since 2014.
It’s a great feeling to know you’ve helped someone understand what comes quite naturally to those of us with an aptitude for numbers. Being part of the volunteer program has not only been beneficial to the recipients of the workshops, but it’s also helped me showcase my employer (who contributes to the program by supporting my role in it), as well as give back to my community and the CPA profession.
