Your Money Matters Program Provides intensive one-on-one mentoring in which participants are engaged in at least two individual learning sessions per month over the course of up to six months. Sessions will range from thirty minutes to two hours. During these sessions, students will work with their mentors to learn financial best practices, set financial goals, mitigate debt, and much more. The program will consist of nine modules, modeled after the best-practice Your Money, Your Goals curriculum, developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). All programming – from initial group training to one-on-one mentoring – will be provided at no cost to participants.
The financial learning needs of each participant will be evaluated individually. For example, participants who score lower on the initial Financial Empowerment Self-Assessment will engage in more mentoring hours compared to those who achieve higher scores. In addition to the guided topics and lessons below, mentors and mentees work together to identify additional hands-on activities that are necessary.
