Our North America volunteer ambassadors speak up to help consumers

In 2011 Experian North America launched an exciting new programme that enables employees to volunteer as financial education ambassadors.

More than 70 employees have completed their training and are now providing financial literacy education on credit topics to consumers in the communities where they live and work and online. Armed with presentations and other financial education resources, they have the confidence to volunteer their services within community groups and schools. Sometimes they are also supporting our clients in delivering customer education events. Our ambassadors are even connecting with their online communities by hosting live discussions on Facebook. In addition to greatly increasing our outreach in financial literacy, the programme equips our employees with the knowledge they and their families need to live credit smart.

The programme is a great example of how our employees are empowering themselves to use their talent, skills and services to benefit society.
