What is the Money Mentor Program?
Sponsored by University of Illinois Extension, the Money Mentors program is a network of trained volunteers who work one-on-one with individuals who request help with personal money management.
Money Mentors volunteers build financial capacity in our local communities by providing financial education and coaching to individuals as well as by providing community outreach through displays, community talks, and other outreach projects.
How can a Money Mentor help me?
Money Mentors are available to assist individuals with personal finance strategies, including:
- Establishing Financial Goals
- Building Savings
- Managing Credit
- Organizing Finances
Mentees and mentors can meet as many times as they feel necessary to work through money management strategies applicable to the Mentee participant's situation.
The goal for each meeting is to determine the most important steps a mentee can make to move towards her or his financial goals. Money Mentors volunteers are trained and have problem-solving techniques to help make plans for mentees to move forward.
