Volunteer Financial Coaching

The United Way is looking for volunteer coaches to work with people who are saving for a better future.

United Way financial education and matched savings programs equip families with the tools needed to become more financially stable.  Trained Volunteer Financial Coaches walk alongside program participants on their journey to financial empowerment.

By volunteering just 1 to 2 hours a month, you can help one family learn to save regularly and accomplish their financial goals (i.e. pay off debt or save for their child’s education.) 

Training is provided to prepare you for coaching program participants and United Way staff and fellow coaches are available to help you along the way. Coaches are needed to help families in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. 

Nature of Work: The Volunteer Financial Coach will provide one-on-one support to a program participant to help them work toward their financial and savings goals. Financial coaches meet via telephone with their program participant monthly. For more information please contact the Volunteer Financial Coach Program Coordinator listed below.

Length of Volunteer Commitment: Minimum of 4 months, maximum of 6 months

Volunteer Times/Location: Will vary based on participant’s and coach’s schedules; no more than 1-2 hours per month
