Volunteers Needed: Empowering Women for the Future Event

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 Alliance Series

BAFEF LoogThe Bay Area Financial Education Foundation (BAFEF) is proud to present the second annual “Empowering Women For The Future” – a volunteer event celebrating International Women’s Day, where local women in finance will spend an afternoon mentoring Bay Area middle and high school girls participating in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s enrichment programs. The event is supported by our allied organizations including 100 Women in Finance, CFA Society San Francisco’s Women’s Initiative Network and the Financial Women of San Francisco. The event kicks off with a luncheon and inspiring address from Avid Modjtabai, Executive Vice President at Wells Fargo & Company.

We are looking for volunteers on Wednesday, March 8 from 11:30 am to 3:30 p.m. at: 
Metropolitan Club, 640 Sutter Street, San Francisco, 94102

During this structured program, women in finance who participate will be serving as coaches to the young women, helping to develop the students’ personal mission and offering advice on how to improve their business plans and presentation skills. Volunteers will be paired 1:1 with NFTE students, assisting them with developing their ideas fully, focusing on the areas they have difficulty understanding or articulating, and helping them to prepare them for presenting their ideas before an audience and a panel of judges. NFTE program directors will lead the session and provide support throughout the afternoon.
