Why Become a MoneyTalk Volunteer?

Madison County has experienced a more than 2 percent increase in the poverty rate in the past years.  The median income is barely sufficient for a family of four.  Financial Literacy programs such as MoneyTalk help families become more stable and create better opportunities for them.

What Can You Do?

You can help by becoming a MoneyTalk mentor or trainer.  Mentors work one on one with families.  Trainers provide workshops at local organizations or businesses for individuals to learn financial literacy such as budgeting, checking accounts and more.  NO FINANCIAL EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Training is provided by United Way.


MoneyTalk volunteers choose how often they serve, with commitments ranging from a few hours, to monthly or weekly.


MoneyTalk volunteers would work in a variety of places according to their assignment.  Locations might include the United Way office, local libraries, or partner businesses.  MoneyTalk volunteers, working as mentors, may choose to meet with families at any agreed upon place.


Become a volunteer that wants to make a difference.  With the guidance of the United Way staff, you will become the best MoneyTalk volunteer you can be!
