Los Angeles, CA
Arabic-speaking Financial Coaching Volunteer
The Financial Coaching Volunteer will support the IRC by working one on one with refugees, asylees, sponsors of unaccompanied children, and other immigrants to learn the basics of building a budget, opening a bank account, building credit, and other aspects of financial literacy.
The Volunteer Financial Coach will work with the program participants to help them identify financial goals, such as saving for their child's college fund or saving money to move into a better apartment. Once the goals have been identified, the Volunteer Financial Coach will work with the participant to plan and implement strategies to make these new goals a reality.
