At Budget Buddies, we know that when women achieve financial security and independence, the entire community benefits. That's why we partner with low-income women in a unique one-on-one coaching program that helps them set and achieve financial goals.
You don't have to be a finance expert to be a coach. All you need is the desire to help a woman in your community make the most of the money she has.
Budget Buddies builds the financial literacy, confidence, and security of low-income women in Massachusetts, through a unique program that combines instructional workshops and personal, one-to-one coaching.
We work with clients referred by local social service agencies and customize our program to their needs. Local financial institutions lead our classes. Volunteer coaches serve as personal mentors. The special mentoring component customizes assistance to each client.
Low-income women - who typically have no access to the financial advisors that educate those with higher incomes - get individualized help with the specific financial issues that keep them in poverty.
Teach Financial Skills that Last a Lifetime
Do you have 90 MINUTES a week to change someone’s life?
As a volunteer coach, you’ll provide ongoing, one-on-one support for your client - and we’ll support you in that effort. As a start, here’s a summary of what we ask of our coaches:
- A genuine interest in and commitment to working with low-income women
- Strict confidentiality of all client financial and personal information
- A 3-4 month commitment to your client
- Participation in a one-hour coaches’ orientation

We’d love to have you come learn more about our programs!
