Coaching is the way of the future! Go through our training to become a Financial Coach and get paired one-on-one with a client. Gain professional experience working with a client to set and achieve financial goals. Rather than simply educating or giving advice, coaches work one-on-one with our low income residents to help them improve their financial well-being, set and achieve meaningful financial goals, develop action steps, provide accountability, and serve as a resource for client questions.


Successful coaches are active listeners, curious, goal-oriented, and able to work in partnership with their client.

Knowledge of personal financial management is useful but not required.

Coaches attend a 1-day training to learn the financial curriculum, coaching practices, and tools that can be used with clients.
Training is held on weeknight evenings.
