Money Coaches help to change lives by mentoring teens in local high schools and youth serving organizations. Money Coach is an innovative, small-group mentoring program where 3-4 volunteers work together as a team and guide juniors & seniors in high school through lessons and activities designed to help them build good, personal money-management habits.

The Money Coach program is focused on interactive learning and relationship building. All mentoring is done during the Money Coach group sessions (not off-site or alone), so this is a great opportunity for someone who is new to the mentor role. Training, curriculum & materials are provided. Each group is supported by a SecureFutures staff member.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Money Coach groups meet twice a month and consist of 12-18 students, generally teens from economically disadvantaged families who are in need of a supportive mentor. As a coach, you join a team of 3 or 4 volunteers, each with a specific role:

  • Group Coaches are responsible for preparing and delivering the group lessons
  • One-On-one coaches are responsible for meeting individually and in small groups to guide students through the program
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The amazing rewards make the time commitment worth it. You must be able to:

  • commit to a 4 month program (Sept-Dec or Feb-May)
  • attend a 4.5 hour training event on a Saturday (other training arrangements can be made, if necessary)
  • attend two 90 minute group sessions per month, during daytime school hours or right after the school day ends (a total of 12 hours total over 4 months)

After submitting an application on the SecureFutures website, volunteers are screened and placed into teams to best meet the groups' needs. You are able to express preferences in regards to days of the week, times, location, and role. Although the sites change every semester, coaches will be serving teens around the Milwaukee Metro area.
