Love Focus Financial Well-Being Mentor Program helps to empower youth in our community to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential.

The mentoring program works with adult volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor can help youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.

Financial education fosters financial stability for individuals and for entire communities. The more people know about credit and banking services, the more likely they are to make informed decisions on money matters where a wrong decision could result in years of financial pain. On the other hand, smart decision could mean save money, and improve their financial health and well-being.

We train and certify mentors. College students volunteering to be mentors, we will work with your college so that you receive work experience academic credit. To volunteer as a mentor, please download volunteer application. After completion, click on the submit button to send.
