Educational presentations for students

Coins in the Classroom | user_58735

Good morning,

My name is Ruben. I'm a new member who is interested in doing coin/currency educational presentations to children in Minnesota. Does anyone have any advice on how to get started? Are schools willing to pay or make a donation in exchange for the presentation?

Thank you.

I wouldn't say that you represent the ANA . You can say your a member only. I ask you please do not an for donations. That might shut more doors to those who volunteer. This would cause the kids who I help no one. No one will be allowed in. Would you mind telling us your experience in collecting coins?

Sounds like you have a great idea! Check out the ANA for information. Good luck!

ANA has material. Check out the requirements for a Coin Collecting Boy Scouts Merit Badge program. You can find the info on the ANA website.

I doubt if any public schools can offer any more than a firm handshake and a sincere Thank You. You might think about contacting private schools, but have something to show them up front, a taped version of your presentation or a willingness to audition before you are actually engaged. If you are looking for a stipend, tell the exact amount you are expecting. I would think the vast majority of this kind of presentation is done on a strictly voluntary basis.

Contact the ANA they will be happy to help. I'm sure they have ideas and pamflets. I don't think they would. It's usually done in a classroom basis. But who knows they might. So your looking to go to school to school give a presentation . Most of the time it's volunteer basis. But others will know better. Otherwise everyone would be out there looking for donations. The schools would be flooded with volunteers. It just sounds wrong. They can get the same thing here with free workshops and scholarships I mean we do it from the heart. For free hundreds do it for nothing. Sounds like a money maker.

That is more of a volunteer thing. Never hurts to ask.

I know most schools are not willing to pay unless it is a private school. would go to the libraries and ask about it though, and asking never hurts. Hopefully you will be able to talk to those kids and inspire some.
