Volunteer Opportunities

Financial coach volunteer - Prepare + Prosper

Financial coaches are trained on coaching techniques and financial topics. Then, they meet one-on-one with low- to moderate-income individuals to assist in developing the skills needed to increase long-term financial capability.

Financial coaching is a personalized process that helps participants take action to reach their financial goals. Financial coaches don’t offer direct advice on financial issues; instead they offer support, resources, and encouragement to guide participants to their own answers. The key roles of a financial coach are to empower and hold participants accountable for their financial decisions and actions and to focus on behavior change while recognizing the material, mental, and emotional challenges that go along with tackling financial goals.

Please read the full financial coach position description to learn about core responsibilities and the overall timeline and commitment.
