READY TO VOLUNTEER?
Wells Fargo employees are encouraged to use Hands on Banking financial education content when volunteering with nonprofit organizations and schools. Here’s how to get started.
Connect with fellow volunteers
Joining your local Employee Impact Team is the best first step. These internal groups organize and share volunteer opportunities, they can advise on developing your own volunteer opportunities, and they may be able to connect you with other employees who have volunteered with Hands on Banking. Connecting with EIT leaders and members is the best way to learn about presenting Hands on Banking content and find ideas for where to volunteer. Search for “Employee Impact Team” on Teamworks for more information.
