We need volunteers to serve in multiple capacities:
- Financial Mentors – individuals of low-income who have experience in managing finances effectively are needed to be mentors. These individuals will meet with loan applicants about once a month and provide information, advice and referrals. These individuals will also work with loan applicants to complete the budget, the timeline for paying the loans back, and the loan application. Training will be provided.
- Train the Trainers – We will need individuals who are willing to train the financial mentors and serve as a resource when the financial mentor needs assistance.
- St. Vincent de Paul Members – we will need Saint Vincent de Paul members who perform home visits to help us identify individuals who need loans. We will also need Saint Vincent de Paul members to assist in other aspects of the program, including media, marketing, organization of microloan programs in additional counties, and fundraising.
If you are interested in volunteering in one of these ways, please email Deb Zabloudil - firstname.lastname@example.org
