“Blessed” for financial coaching: Money Coach alum and education partner share program impact
And, as she’s worked part-time jobs and packed away money during her senior year at Riverside University H.S., she has been able to check off one of the goals on her plan – buying a car “that gets her from A to B,” a 1989 Chevy Celebrity.
Divyne and fellow Money Coach alum, Taleavia, joined PEARLS education partner Danita Bush to share insight on the impact of the Money Coach program on past students and those to come during a recent SecureFutures board directors meeting. Below are a few excerpts of impact from the Money Coach conversation, held at the Milwaukee headquarters of PEARLS for Teen Girls.
Danita, on what stands out to her about Money Coach: “The stories the girls tell how Money Coach has impacted them … Alissa, another PEARLS alum, a junior at M.S.O.E., reached out last year because she was having some struggles managing her finances. Because she was a participant in Money Coach she knew she had to get herself back on track.” (Danita is pictured below, seated at the top-right, next to Taleavia, in the purple shirt.)
