Are you interested in helping people manage money?
Volunteers and the Money Minders Program Coordinator are partners in the delivery of Money Minders services to clients. A volunteer assists a client with some or all of the following tasks, depending on client needs:
- Read and sort mail;
- Prepare a basic monthly budget;
- Prepare BUT NOT SIGN checks to pay monthly bills;
- Record transactions in the check register;
- Reconcile the check register to a bank statement; and
- Communicate with vendors about billing issues.
Please note that volunteers do not exercise control over any client funds.
Experience and skills needed by the volunteers include the following:
- Previous experience managing their own household budget, bill-paying and bank account reconciliation;
- An understanding of the importance of maintaining client confidentiality;
- The ability to respect the client’s decisions about how they spend their money;
- The ability to avoid situations with a client that might create a conflict of interest;
- Basic record keeping skills: volunteers are required to submit client visitation forms and bank account reconciliation forms monthly; and
- Previous experience with banking, bookkeeping or assisting older relatives with bill paying is helpful but not required.
