Financial Empowerment Center
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Britepaths/FEC. We will be conducting a combined training of all our volunteer opportunities in our Financial Literacy program. Please see the different opportunities we have under this program.
Financial coaches provide one-on-one financial counseling to clients at the Financial Empowerment Center and for the Financial Counseling Clinics. We have a need for daytime and evening financial coaches. To provide one-to-one, 45 minutes - 1-hour sessions.
Financial mentors work one-on-one with a specific client for 6-12 months. We ask that mentors and clients commit to meeting twice a month for a one-hour session. We match mentors and clients with similar work schedules and living/working locations.
