In celebrating National Payroll Week 2017, the Southern Colorado APA is excited to announce its involvement in Money Matters National Education Day September 7, 2017.

We are looking for 3-4 volunteers to present the ins-and-outs of a paycheck to high school age students, the curriculum is provided by the APA.

We will be presenting on September 7th from 4:30pm -5:30pm at the Boys & Girls Club of the Pikes Peak Region.  There is a potential for a second date depending on the number of volunteers we get.

We will schedule a planning meeting a week or two before the presentation.  Time and location TBD

Each volunteer receives 1 RCH credit, recognition from APA's Executive Director, Dan Maddux for your volunteer efforts, plus all Chapter members who volunteer will be eligible for APA's National Education Champion Regional Contest.

What is Money Matters National Education Day?
During Money Matters National Education Day, payroll professionals from across the country will unite to stop the spread of financial illiteracy. Volunteer payroll professionals will teach local high school students in their community the ins-and-outs of their paychecks, electronic payment methods like direct deposit and paycards, and the payroll withholding system.

What will volunteers teach?

APA has teamed up with the Council for Economic Education to create a special lesson for Money Matters National Education Day. This structured lesson, designed for students new to the workforce or about to enter the workforce, teaches the elements of a paycheck, the amount of taxes they can expect to have withheld, how those taxes are calculated and various options to receive their pay.
