You do not have to be a financial expert to help.

Volunteers are core to our work at Women’s Money Matters. Our participants know that our coaches and presenters are not showing up to support them because they are being paid to do so – they are doing it because they genuinely care.

Our fully-remote programs offer a range of volunteer opportunities and ways to help out from anywhere you are. We also have some limited in-person volunteering opportunities!

All you need is the desire to help another woman in your community make the most of the money she has.

We believe diversity in identity and perspective enriches our programs and helps us better serve our clients. We strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQ-identifying individuals, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups to apply to become a coach.

Step One - Apply to be a volunteer today!

Ways to Get Involved

Coach

Coaches are the backbone of our one-on-one coaching model. Coaches are thoughtfully paired with a program participant for the duration of the program. They work directly with their partner to help them reach their specific financial goals.

Apply to be a coach today!

Presenter

Presenters facilitate specific workshops as part of the program’s curriculum. For each workshop, we have already developed the lesson plan and materials, presenters are there to lead the lesson and conversation. You select the workshop topic that you feel most passionate about! Presenters can facilitate as many or as few workshops as they would like and are available, so this is a great way for individuals to volunteer who cannot commit to being a coach.

Hear from Volunteers

I would greatly encourage someone to become a coach. I found the group to be very supportive, kind and all contributed to an incredibly genial environment for all.

Patricia

I am learning and so grateful for the opportunity. My participant was wonderful. I sent her encouraging text messages on Monday mornings her responses were filled with gratitude. It was encouraging for me.
We planted seeds.

Kimberly

I enjoyed helping a woman make tangible differences in her life and helping the entire group of participants in supporting one another!

Allison

I love coaching with this program! It's so inspiring to help other women empower themselves in their lives.

Pamela

I think this program shows in a simple way how to start organizing your finance and that is great. I loved the fact that maybe I’m not a financial expert, but I have had some other opportunities in life and adding some empathy, I could support these women in their journeys.

Our Volunteers

Many of our financial wellness programs are virtual so you can sign up to help create more secure financial futures for the women in our programs from anywhere. Our programs take place in the eastern time zone but our volunteers currently span the entire country, and even across the globe!

Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions

How to Get Involved

What is the time commitment each week for each role?

Volunteer Coach: 

~2.5 hours per week for the duration of the program (~3-4 months). Each week will include 1 hour of 1:1 time (or more if you choose), and a 1.5 hour WMM workshop.  If you need to miss a workshop or two, that is ok just communicate with us and your partner! 

Volunteer Presenter: 

~3-4 hours per workshop: 1.5-2.5 hours to prepare for the workshop and 2 hours on presentation day. Once you have presented a workshop, the preparation time will be less if you present again in the future!

I am not available during normal working hours. Would this prevent me from being able to volunteer as a coach?

Not at all! The majority of our programs take place in the evening, though some are offered during the day. The coach and participant paired together decide the best time to meet between workshops that will work for both of their schedules.

What if I need to miss one or more workshop sessions?

We understand that an unavoidable conflict may come up, people get sick, etc. The success of the program relies on a commitment from both the coach and their partner to attend as many workshops and one-on-one sessions as possible.  If it is something you know about in advance, be sure to let the Program Leader know so they will ensure that your participant has support during the breakout session/workshop. Also let your partner know that you will not be there and encourage them to attend in your absence so they do not miss the week’s lesson.  If you know in advance that you will be missing multiple workshops, our Volunteer Manager can help you find a program that will better fit your schedule.

Can I coach multiple participants at once?

Coaches can only coach one participant per Women’s Money Matters program. We pride ourselves in the meaningful one-on-one relationships that are built between coaches and participants, which have proven most successful in supporting participants in meeting their financial goals. Special circumstances where experienced coaches want to volunteer for multiple programs (e.g., if programs that may overlap shortly or meet at different times) will be considered on a case-by-case basis by program leadership.

Are volunteer positions (e.g., coaches, presenters) compensated or provided stipends?

Coaches and presenters are volunteers who give their time to women in our programs.

Volunteer Qualifications

What qualifies a person to be a coach?

The women in our financial health programs need a different type of financial coach. Our participants come from a diverse set of backgrounds and, unfortunately, many have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. For these reasons, while our participants come to us to get support in meeting their financial goals, they really need someone who can take the time to understand their full life picture in a non-judgmental and compassionate way. Someone who cares about the participant holistically. Someone who is in their corner and wants to empower them and build their confidence to succeed, both personally and financially.

Do any workshops require a financial background to be a presenter?

Although a financial background is not necessary to be a presenter, some workshop topics such as Building Credit, Repairing Credit, and Fighting Fraud require a level of expertise on the topic and knowledge of current trends in order to feel comfortable responding to questions during the presentation. These workshops are often led by volunteers directly from financial institutions.

Do I need to be a woman to volunteer?

Coaches are required to be women (cis and trans women) or a non-binary person who is comfortable in a space that centers around the experiences of women. 

Anyone, regardless of gender, is welcome to be a presenter as long as they are comfortable working in a women-centered space.

What technology do I need to have to participate in virtual programs?

You can join from any device anywhere as long as you have the internet access to connect to Zoom, we just ask that you have your camera on when possible to build a rapport with the group. It is preferred that the Tech Support role connect with a computer that supports full zoom functionality.

Why do I have to fill out a CORI (i.e., background check) and sign a confidentiality agreement?

Throughout the program, participants may be disclosing personal financial information with their partner via screen sharing or in person (example: credit reports, bank statements, online accounts). In addition to the our Life Launch program which may include participants under the age of 18, many of our participants are parents/caregivers of children, and it is entirely possible to encounter them throughout the program, especially during virtual programming and in-person one-on-one in meetings.  We want to maintain trust with our participants and collaborating organizations by ensuring our volunteers are fully vetted. 

Volunteer Training

What materials and resources will I receive and how will they be delivered?

At this time, materials (google slides for weekly workshops, zoom links, activities, etc.) are shared via google drive. This is expected to change with upcoming developments on our new website; regardless, materials will still be accessed electronically.

Is training required to be a volunteer?

All volunteers (coaches, presenters) receive official training and orientations, as well as all needed materials and resources to adequately fulfill their role. A Coach Exchange (zoom event) is offered each month for new and experienced coaches to come together and share ideas, experiences, and support each other through any challenges they may be facing.

Do presenters develop the workshops?

No, we already have a curriculum that was developed over many years in a really interactive way with many partners, participants and presenters providing input. Presenters are provided with materials and a lesson plan but are encouraged to augment the presentation with their own knowledge and flair while being sensitive to the audience to which they will be presenting.

Program-Related Questions

How am I assigned to a program? Can I choose which program I volunteer for?

As new programs are announced, volunteers will be notified (via email/newsletter) and will have the opportunity to review options and select which program they would prefer to enroll in based upon their personal schedule and availability.

How do you match your participants to coaches?

Participants and coaches are matched by the Volunteer Manager and Program Leader based on answers provided on the intake application/survey submitted by both participants and coaches, as well as information shared during the Introduction workshops.  We encourage Coaches to let us know of any skills, abilities, or experiences that they feel would be helpful in the matching process.

What determines if a program will run longer? Would I know before signing up?

Program schedules are set before we start the process of recruiting coaches.  Although very rare, if an adjustment needs to be made to an existing schedule after the start of the program, all participants will be notified in advance.

Will programs be returning to in-person?

We have begun in-person programs again for collaborator organizations who request it. If you would like to volunteer in-person ask about the locations of our in-person programs. We will continue to offer a lot of virtual opportunities too!

We look forward to hearing from you!

🌟 Witness the power of advocacy and resilience! In this heartfelt testimony, Ariela courageously speaks out about the challenges she and many other Women's Money Matters participants and graduates face, along with countless families impacted by the cliff effect. The cliff effect occurs when earning slightly more money results in losing a lot of benefits all at once, making it tougher to achieve financial stability. Ariela’s story powerfully underscores the urgent need for change. 

At Women's Money Matters, we are dedicated to addressing these challenges head-on. We are proud to promote the Bridge to Prosperity Pilot Program, which will provide crucial support for families at risk of falling 'off' the cliff. This initiative is a collaborative effort with Springfield Works, Western Mass Economic Development Council, the Food Bank of Western Mass, and the Economic Pathways Coalition. 

📢We need YOUR support! Please contact your Massachusetts House Representative and ask for their support and co-sponsorship on Amendment #889. Together, we can amplify the voices of women like Ariela in our program, in our communities, and across our state whose economic trajectory is derailed by the cliff effects. 

Together, we're making a difference and building a stronger, more resilient community.

What financial health advice do you wish you received as a younger person? We all wish we had not learned some financial health lessons the hard way, and NOW is your chance to promote confidence in the future generations of girls and women. 

We have TWO in person Life Launch programs beginning soon in Lowell. These programs are not just special because they are serving young women and girls, these programs are a chance to start out on the right foot and for these young women and girls to feel confident surrounding their financial future. 

1️⃣We are calling women who are passionate about empowering other young women and supporting their journey to join us for a 9-week commitment to coaching starting April 24th, every Monday from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM. This program is in partnership with Brigid’s Crossing, a Catholic Charities Shelter that uplifts and supports young mothers who are in transition and getting themselves and their children back on their feet. 

2️⃣Our second program in Lowell is in partnership with the Greenhalge Elementary school. This program will be after school Tuesdays 3-4pm and will bring together a group of 9-11 year old girls to introduce them to financial wellness and money management. They will have a space to come together and talk about how money relates to goals, how to break goals into manageable and doable pieces, and begin introducing them to finances to promote confidence in the future.
💪This would be an awesome opportunity for a teen girl or young woman who is passionate about empowering our future leaders! 

📨Share this with teens, young women, your friends, your family, and the community in Lowell so we can support these girls and young women in our programs.

Get ready for an unforgettable journey through Boston's sports history as we gather to celebrate the iconic ensemble hailed as 'the greatest sports staff ever' by Sports Illustrated.

But this event is more than just a trip down memory lane. It's a chance to make a real difference in our community. With 100% of proceeds going to individuals facing hardship in Greater Boston and beyond, your attendance directly contributes to meaningful change. We are partners of the Boston Bullpen, so this event also supports women in our programs who receive direct financial relief from our referral to Boston Bullpen. 

Click to register today: https://bostonbullpenproject.org/dream-team-event-2024/

At Women's Money Matters, we're dedicated to offering direct financial relief through partnerships with organizations like Boston BullPen and NeighborShare, and initiatives like our WMM EmpowHERment fund, we're making a tangible impact on people's lives.

Take, for example, one of our graduates who is a Boston Bullpen recipient—a woman whose car caught fire while driving with her daughter. Thanks to the support of these direct relief initiatives, we were able to provide funding to help with food insecurities and the unexpected expenses caused by the car fire.

🌟 Did you know? Despite progress, there's still a significant gender wealth gap in women-led families. According to recent data, the median wealth of female respondents is just 55 cents for every dollar of male respondent wealth. That's a staggering 45% penalty in median family wealth for women compared to men.

Even after adjusting for various individual and family characteristics, the gap persists. Female respondents still face a median wealth that is 9% less than that of male respondents. These findings suggest that families with a female respondent may be less resilient to unexpected shocks, less prepared for retirement, and less able to support children's upward economic mobility.

This Financial Empowerment Month, let's tackle these disparities head-on! 

Join us at Women's Money Matters as we celebrate Financial Literacy Month by empowering women and girls living on low-incomes with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to bridge the gender wealth gap and achieve financial wellness.

Together, let's make a difference in people's lives by promoting financial literacy and empowerment! 💪💰
