Are you passionate about financial stability and education? Do you enjoy working directly with people while advocating for community and economic development? We are developing a dynamic team of 27 service-minded, results-driven candidates who will provide direct financial stability services to low income individuals and families throughout the Upstate of South Carolina, leading them into the Cycle of Success. Current members have helped to provide a savings of over $1.8 million in tax preparation fees and aided community members in receiving over $9 million in refunds. Additionally, members have provided over 3500 individuals and families with financial literacy services. Selected candidates will have the opportunity to serve with internationally leading organizations like United Way, learn from experts in the nonprofit field, and gain practical experience in community and economic development, community outreach, and a variety of other areas. This is a great opportunity for recent graduates, retirees, or anyone who is interested in starting a career in the nonprofit field. If you have the desire to serve others, have skills or experience related to communications, recruitment, social services, and community organization, you would be a great fit for our program.
