Jump$tart volunteers at 2nd Annual Financial Wellness Day on 9/20

FWDOn September 20, 2017, Vermont Jump$tart Directors volunteered at the 2nd annual Financial Wellness Day, hosted by Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO) and the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. (VSAC).

The free event provided an opportunity to access a range of financial education, including kids’ activities like financial bingo, face painting, and henna tattoos.

This was the second year Jump$tart volunteers took part in the event. Jump$tart Board members Peter Newman, Wendy Rea, and Dylan Giambatista volunteered. Vermont Jump$tart looks forward to taking part in this important event in 2018 and beyond!
