      The process involved four separate interviews with various staff members culminating in final interview with President. Quite a process for 30k a year, perhaps they no longer employ this practice but it was so in 2018.

      Questions related to personal accountability, the position is such that you are self directed so ensuring a candidate maintain a level of personal responsibility seemed important.

    United Way, California Capital Region, is addressing the woeful lack of financial literacy in America by introducing the concept of saving to the very youngest students--kindergarteners! With a seed of $25 donated to each student's account, they kicked off the college savings of these youngsters and their families. The Young Leaders Society that launched this program know they're on the right track. Studies show that if a child has even a small amount saved for college, he or she is three times more likely to attend and four times more likely to graduate. So, they partnered with SAFE Credit Union and California Assemblymember Kevin McCarty to offer the K2C Program. The class of 2030 will certainly thank them!
