    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at United Way (Denver, CO) in Dec 2020


    Because of COVID it was through zoom. It went really good and it was easy to talk to the person. Very kind and makes you feel comfortable. It's a great place to get involved and learn.

    How would your involvement help the community?

United Way, California Capital Region, is addressing the woeful lack of financial literacy in America by introducing the concept of saving to the very youngest students--kindergarteners! With a seed of $25 donated to each student's account, they kicked off the college savings of these youngsters and their families. The Young Leaders Society that launched this program know they're on the right track. Studies show that if a child has even a small amount saved for college, he or she is three times more likely to attend and four times more likely to graduate. So, they partnered with SAFE Credit Union and California Assemblymember Kevin McCarty to offer the K2C Program. The class of 2030 will certainly thank them! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMeYX
