The Advancement Project

Advancement Project Participant with her financial coachAre you interested in being paired with a volunteer financial coach to work towards greater financial stability?

If you have completed our Basic Money Management Course (or a money management class that covers budgeting and credit), and are interested in reducing expenses, paying down debt, starting to save, and are ready to invest time to create a financial plan, we invite you to enroll in the Advancement Project.

Apply today to be matched with a financial coach. You will determine your goal and action steps; your Financial Coach will support you towards its achievement.

As a result of your coaching sessions, you will develop positive financial habits and gain confidence about managing your money. You will empower yourself to reach your financial dreams.


Come meet us and learn more about the Advancement Project at an upcoming “Meet and Greet.” You’ll get a general overview of the program—the time commitment and coaching philosophy — and will have an opportunity to mingle with other potential  participants and coaches.
