Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to assist us in helping people attain financial self-sufficiency? Meeting people's needs is what we do, and we do it best when our members lend a hand. If you're interested, consider volunteering! The following opportunities are available:

Join a Board Committee
Our Board Committees are a great way to learn about what it takes to make the Credit Union run. You don't need to be a member of the board to join. Find out more about our various committees and see which one is right for you.  If interested, please contact the Staff Liaison listed on the board committee page.

Help Prepare Taxes for our Free Tax Preparation Program
We provide free tax preparation to our low-income community population. The success of our program depends on help from the community. If you're interested, we'd love to have you join us. E-mail Brian for more info.

Share your Expertise with Alternatives Businesses
Business CENTS is looking for a few good speakers. Do you have an expertise you'd like to share with small business owners? E-mail us with your idea and we'll let you know if we think the fit is good. We'd be happy to talk to you about how we can use your skills.

Student Credit Union
The Student Credit Union is a program designed to help young people learn financial education through credit union services. Student volunteers are trained as tellers and help their peers open new accounts, make savings deposits or withdrawals, cash checks, learn about financial tools and develop a saving habit. This is an excellent opportunity to assist in developing a financial educational model for public schools. To volunteer, e-mail Joe.

Your gift to Alternatives Impact helps our community!

Express Employment Professionals, Kathy Nivison

With a background of 15 years in Human Resources, Kathy Nivison started up the Ithaca office of Express Employment Professionals to better serve local employment and recruiting needs. Kathy approached Alternatives for a business loan, and was impressed with both the loan's low interest rate, as well as the quick response from Bob Anderson, the business loan officer at Alternatives.

Kathy took advantage of our "Women and Minority" subsidized loan, which helps women and minority borrowers who have a minimum of one year in business and are looking for assistance with continued growth and expansion.
