School is starting soon (cue muffled cheering from parents, loud moans from children). Make this the year that you get involved in education. If you're a parent, reach out to the schools your children attend. Work with your community schools even if you're not a parent. Consider contacting schools you attended yourself. Here are some tips for getting involved:

  • Be a tutor
  • Organize an evening meeting with parents to discuss financial planning issues
  • Offer to speak to high school students about borrowing, bank accounts, and credit
  • Help with events
  • Join a fundraising campaign and offer to print flyers explaining the tax benefits of contributing

Okay, this is just a short list - now it's your turn to come up with more ideas. Send me your ideas and stories and I'll share them with the rest of the audience.
