Description

Biz Kid Academy is a 5013c non-profit financial literacy program that prepares kids to be tomorrows business owners. We encourage youth to think as entrepreneurs and business professionals. Our activities help students translate their knowledge to real world authentic experiences. Your child will develop ideas, set goals, make plans and solve problems.

The volunteer coordinator recruits, assists in training, and manages volunteers for
various Biz Kid Academy service projects that address specific program and community
needs. The volunteers recruited by the volunteer coordinator should reflect a balance
of college students, local community service organizations, and others who can
participate in a range of volunteer service projects. Basic volunteer service project
categories include one-day, short-term, and long-term service projects.
