“This program works because of the relationships built between the mentor and mentee which fosters encouragement, accountability and education,” said Pam Atkinson, Money Mentor coordinator.

“The Money Mentor training provided valuable insights into better understanding other peoples’ values and communicating financial concepts. It is important to understand my mentees’ perspective and identify the financial goals that are important to them and why,” said Porter.
