Balance Your Bucs
To reach all students, in every major, on the Whitworth campus, and to educate them in all important areas of personal finance.
Who We Are
Balance Your Bucs is a student-led personal-finance group that seeks to provide a foundation for a lifetime of financial well-being for every student on campus. We offer two workshops every month to the Whitworth community on every level of personal finance.
Dedicated student mentors make this group successful. These mentors represent many majors across campus, but all share the passion of personal finance. Mentors attend a training session one week before each workshop to learn the materials and decide who will present the following week. This approach allows our group to connect students with personal mentors who are well-prepared and excited about answering financial questions. Anyone and everyone is welcome to become a Balance Your Bucs student mentor!
