Online: Florida Master Money Mentor Volunteer Training

Florida Master Money Mentor Volunteer training covers basic personal finance topics and teaches you how to empower others to take control of their personal finances.

The online training has 9 modules with topics such as financial decision making, motivational interviewing, cash flow management, consumer loans, building a positive credit history, and saving for future goals. Topics are explored through videos, presentations, case studies, and group discussion. The modules are self-paced and take approximately 1-2 hours to complete.

In partnership with their local Extension Office, Florida Master Money Mentors volunteers provide personal finance education to Florida residents on topics such as cash flow management, credit, and achieving goals. Mentors do this through 1-1 education sessions, small group classes, staffing tables at community events, and some mentors also choose to serve as tax preparation volunteers. Mentors can select the type of effort that fits their time and talents. Due to the pandemic, most activities are currently being done virtually.

Residents with a desire for professional development or personal knowledge can also attend the training.

The registration fee for the online training is $45.95 and will include some optional live group webinars. Full and partial scholarships are available to those in need.
