DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation’s Commitment to Service-Learning
DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation is committed to providing service-learning Internship opportunities for youth. The Foundation involves student volunteers and unpaid interns who participate at high levels within our organization throughout the year. As an organization we strive to offer workshops directly related to the needs of the organization, and which also help our volunteers participate and give back to the community through the financial literacy educational programs that we develop.
At DoughMain Financial Literacy Foundation we recognize the benefits to our organization:
Benefits for Service Recipients, Communities, and Society: Beyond the young people directly involved, community-based service-learning benefits the people served, our communities, and, ultimately, society. It meets real needs and priorities for individuals and communities as young people bring new energy, capacity, and creative ideas.6
