Wilkes University


Financial Independence for Tomorrow

This free, non-profit program helps individuals and families in the greater Wilkes-Barre community to become more financially independent.

We train and mentor Wilkes University students to facilitate the F.I.T. curriculum in various settings, including after-school programs, homeless shelters, and at Wilkes University campus. Volunteers may choose to facilitate, but many times the volunteers are encouraged to lend their time developing creative educational and interactive financially themed games and activities. F.I.T. volunteers are also consulted as resources in a variety of ways, including through work-study positions, Scholars in Service to America volunteers, and service-learners.

If you are interested in being a FITTY, please contact the Community Service office at  community.service@wilkes.edu or Ext. 3488.
