Become a volunteer financial coach for the YWCA Evanston North Shore’s Advancement Project, a financial coaching program, and work one-on-one with someone to reach their financial goal. As a financial coach you will assist your participant in creating a positive financial habit that will lead to improved confidence about managing their money and the ability to plan for their financial future.
Specifically, as a Financial Coach you will help your partner:
· identify a financial goal
· identify obstacles to financial goal achievement and strategies to overcome them
· provide tools and resources to help them achieve their goals efficiently and effectively
What skills do you need? A positive attitude and empathy to the financial challenges facing low-to-moderate income adults. A coach must also be dependable, prompt, and flexible. Coaches must be able to maintain privacy and professionalism. You are not expected to be an expert in finance, but rather support and encourage your partner to take the steps needed to achieve their goal.
