Make a difference! Through the Financial Coaching Corps, you can volunteer to assist New Yorkers in developing the skills needed to manage money and gain financial stability.
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program's (RSVP) Financial Coaching Corps is recruiting adults age 55 to work one-on-one with low-wage individuals and families on self-selected areas of financial literacy. Volunteers will attend a training beginning February 2016 that will cover topics such as: banking, credit basics, reading credit reports, debt collection, budgeting and saving, avoiding financial scams, public benefits and tax credits, and working with clients.
Volunteers must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. No previous experience is necessary. A personal interview, successful completion of the training, and a commitment of 4 hours per week for one year of volunteer service is required.
To obtain additional information about the Financial Coaching Corps, please call Reyes Irizarry at (212) 614-5419 or Courtney Davis (212) 614-5413.
