YOU can make a difference in a teen’s life.

Volunteer mentoring student

Becoming a SecureFutures volunteer is not just about sharing financial knowledge; it’s about transforming the lives of teens through education that lasts a lifetime. As a volunteer, you are not just imparting financial wisdom; you are giving young minds the tools they need to navigate the complexities of money management.

Your impact goes beyond the classroom – it becomes a cornerstone in shaping their understanding of financial independence and responsibility. As program alum Antonio Morris said, “SecureFutures was a light when I was in the dark.” Imagine being the guiding light that empowers teens to make informed decisions about their financial futures. Make an impact, one teen at a time.

We give you all of the training and materials you need to be successful.

Money Coach

The goal of the Money Coach program is for teens to develop strong financial skills and behaviors that will prepare them for college, careers, and living independently. Students practice healthy money management skills and are provided the opportunity to earn a scholarship as they meet program benchmarks. There are two volunteer roles within this program:

Group Coach: Responsible for leading the group activities and ensuring each session is on track

One-on-One Coach: Leads small group activities and meets one-on-one with participants

Expected Commitment:

  • Total volunteer commitment is 10 hours of coaching time and 4 hours of training – over three months
  • The program runs on a 10 week long semester
  • Volunteers will meet with their students every other week for 60-90 minutes

Money Sense

Money Sense consists of a series of three, 90-minute lessons. Volunteers lead these lessons to groups of teens, normally in a classroom setting within high schools or community-based organizations.

Students are challenged to think about their goals for the future and build a realistic plan around those goals. Money Path lessons are 90 minutes and can be delivered in one to two visits.

Expected Commitment:
