Become a Money Mentor Volunteer

One out of five people who had a job in February have filed for unemployment, as of April 30th according to a report by NPR. It’s estimated that 50% of Americans have either lost jobs or lost working hours as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Financial challenges are real for most people in our community.

Last year, University of Illinois Extension’s volunteer Money Mentors helped over 90 community members with their financial goals. This year more people are likely to seek help. You can help others by becoming a Money Mentor volunteer.
