360 Degrees of Financial Literacy is a multi-faceted effort, spearheaded by the AICPA, with the support of state CPA societies. The program encourages CPAs to take a broad leadership role in volunteering to educate the American public, from school children to retirees, on financial topics that apply specifically to their particular stage of life. The Financial Literacy Resource Center provides information and turnkey resources for CPAs to use in volunteer efforts. From talking to elementary school students about money basics to organizing workplace brown bags on retirement planning, thousands of CPAs volunteer annually as part of the 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy effort. To ask about getting started or to share your volunteer activities, e-mail financialliteracy@aicpa.org.
