Thrifty Thursday – Free Money for Student Loans

Do you have a child in college? Have you decided to go back to school or earn a higher degree? Then you probably have student loans.

We found a great site that allows a student to use their new skills in a field they love while getting student loans paid off. Typically a new college student becomes educated but doesn’t have much real life experience. Internships are a great way to gain experience, but with student loans piling up, it becomes difficult to work for little to nothing. SponsorChange.org provides a forum for students with skills to volunteer at companies in their field. In return, the program will pay money towards your student loans. For more information go to SponsorChange.org and read more.

Tip Tuesday – Safe School Routes

 

School is back in! Labor day is behind us and kids are in classes. Does your child walk to school? Would you let them if you knew they would be safe? Safety is a major issue when walking to school, especially if they are younger. Typically a school bus will not be available if your home isn’t more than a mile away. For a 6 year old, that is a long way to go by themselves. Fear no more! There is a great program nation wide that will put your mind at ease.

Walking School Bus  is a great program founded in 1992 in Australia. Slowly but surely it made it to the US in 2005. This is a free program that is supported by the Federal Transportation Reauthorization Bill and has sponsors such as the YMCA and the American Heart Association. This program provides a safe walking route, a supervising adult, and a group atmosphere for children that walk to school. It also increases the physical activity of your chidden every day. This program is a fantastic way to get your kids to school safely.

So how do you do it? Good question. Visit the Walking School Bus to see if there is one in your area. If there is not, no problem. Get one started! You can reach out to parents, the principal and others in your community. The simple steps to get started are listed on their site. If you are unable to organize the launch don’t give up. Bring the idea to your principal and PTA. They might be able to reach out to a parent who is.

Good luck getting started and happy walking!
