Volunteer Financial Coach
Clients are enrolled in a Boot Camp program consisting of a series of financial workshops where they create realistic action plans with the assistance of our staff and financial planning experts. Volunteer coaches will work one-on-one with clients for six months to engage and motivate clients as they create and pursue realistic financial goals and practice new financial skills.

Volunteer financial coaches will receive comprehensive training in financial coaching which will provide the tools and skills needed to guide a client in developing and implementing an action plan to reach their financial goals and achieve financial stability. Volunteers should have a desire to learn coaching concepts and an ability to remain positive and culturally sensitive. No financial background necessary!
