Pro Bono Volunteer Boot Camp

The Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) encourages all volunteers to undergo a special training ahead of their first pro bono engagement. This one-hour online course is designed to give CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP) professionals the skills and resources needed to address the unique needs and challenges of lower-income families*.

The Pro Bono Boot Camp is approved for one hour of continuing education (CE) credit by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board). After viewing the Boot Camp in its entirety, volunteers must take and pass the Pro Bono Self-Study to receive their CE credit. 

*FFP only recognizes volunteers who are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals or who work in conjunction with a CFP professional who provides oversight. This policy is in place to help ensure that recipients of pro bono financial advice receive quality, ethical service.
