Sign up for a Young CPA to come to your class!
This program is held yearly in November.
Details will be posted here as they become finalized for 2017.
Young CPA volunteers bring a message of financial literacy through the Classroom BlitzWhen the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants’ Young CPA Cabinet began the Classroom Blitz eight years ago, we didn’t realize what its impact would be. But here we are, 25,000 students later, with a vital relationship formed between teachers and professionals across the state. The pairing of a financial education message with awareness of accounting as a career proved visionary when the ALSDE adopted a new graduation requirement which included both components of the Blitz.
