Magnetar Team Challenge
“Super Bowl” for the high school students studying our finEDge curriculum. Students come in teams to compete in a financial education quiz and mock stock trading competition. It’s a high-energy, high-impact day. We’re looking for three kinds of volunteers for the event:
Coaches – each high school team is assigned a coach to guide them through strategy and analysis in round one of the mock stock trading challenge. This role is reserved for financial professionals with strong market knowledge. Coaches are often the students’ first exposure to financial careers – so we encourage coaches to mentor students and share their real-world experiences. This is typically a 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. volunteer position, but coaches are welcome to stay for the whole event.
Event day volunteers – volunteers of all backgrounds and areas of expertise are welcome to sign-up for a variety of day-of roles like registration or overseeing the trading floor. This is typically a 7-11 a.m. volunteer position, but event day volunteers are welcome to stay for the whole event.
IT volunteers – volunteers with strong technical backgrounds can sign up to staff various tech stations at the event. This is typically a 7-a.m. – 3 p.m. volunteer position, but can be split up into shifts.
