The Extraordinaries: Will Microvolunteering Work [for financial literacy]? : NPR

The Extraordinaries: Will Microvolunteering Work?

via The Extraordinaries: Will Microvolunteering Work? : NPR.

The gist:

Got five minutes? Got a cell phone? Want to do good?  The Extraordinaries can help. It’s one of a number of newly hatched social-media enterprises that champion speedy cooperation. Here is the 30-second elevator pitch: The Extraordinaries delivers microvolunteer opportunities to mobile phones that can be done on-demand and on-the-spot.

———-

Would this concept work for a financial literacy mentorship program?  It does mention “giving advice to college applicants” as one of the microvolunteering possibilities.

What financial literacy questions could be answered for a mentee while waiting in line at the supermarket?

Could this make sense?

Thoughts?

More on this as I explore the concept a bit more…  Just wanted to get a thought started before my ADD-ness causes me to move on to something else before I record it.

Have a good weekend!
