WMM builds the financial literacy, confidence, and security of low-income women in Massachusetts, through a unique program that combines instructional workshops and personal, one-to-one coaching. Volunteer coaches serve as personal mentors. You don't have to be a finance expert to be a coach. All you need is the desire to help a woman in your community make the most of the money she has.

As a volunteer coach, you’ll provide ongoing, one-on-one support for your client - and we’ll support you in that effort. As a start, here’s a summary of what we ask of our coaches:

- A genuine interest in and commitment to working with low-income women

- Strict confidentiality of all client financial and personal information

- An 11 week commitment to your participant (90 minutes a week)

- Participation in a one-hour coaches’ orientation

We are currently looking for coaches for:

DTA Virtual Program: Monday's 11am -12:30pm

Family Access Virtual Program
- Wednesday 6pm-8:30pm

Financial Futures Virtual Program:
Wednesday 6pm-8:30pm

The programs run weekly establishing a partnership for mutual goals between the participant and coach to both succeed.
