Become Our Volunteer

We love our volunteers!  In fact, we couldn’t do everything we do for our neighbors in need without you. Volunteer positions include Financial Coaches, Financial Literacy Class Instructors, and Financial Mentors, who work one-on-one with clients for six months or more.

During COVID-19, our volunteers are working with clients virtually.
Britepaths provides training, support and all the tools volunteers need to help individuals and families in Northern Virginia better manage their finances and achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.
