The Florida Master Money Mentor program is a coordinated referral network designed to match mentors trained in increasing financial knowledge and promoting positive financial practices with people needing these skills. Program participants receive one-on-one assistance in developing spending plans, organizing financial records, understanding credit, and planning for the future.
Volunteer mentors receive approximately 20 hours of intensive training in basic money management, strategies for dealing with financial problems, credit and debt management, savings, mentoring techniques, and connecting to community resources. Following the training, each volunteer provides financial mentoring for at least 50 hours within one year of completion of training. Anyone is welcome to apply to become a mentor; no previous financial education is needed.
