Money Mentor at my College

Postby Rory » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:03 pm

My college offers the opportunity for students to sign up for a money mentor program, in which students can become these "money mentors" and advise other students over such things as:

-credit
-credit cards
-credit scores
-mortgages/loans
-debt management
-and other such topics

I just wanted to thank you guys for giving me the insight and preliminary knowledge to move forward with this program. Without all of your great experience (and sometime terrible experiences) I would never be as adept and knowledgeable about credit and credit cards as i am today.

Thanks everyone, and i hope i can look to you all if I encounter any problems i am unfamiliar with.

I am also hoping to be able to benefit from this program by using as many referral bonuses as i can. Heres hoping i make a heaping helping :)

What college do you attend? That sounds like an awesome program. I teach at a college and we don't offer anything like that for our students.

Boston College, we have a larger program called $uccessful $tart for students to help in financial literacy and career planning. The money mentor program fits into it quite well.

I hope they pick me, its got a whole application process followed by a few interviews, very serious. But i guess they want to know you arent going to steal socials or try and give people the wrong idea.

Go ahead and try and start something at your college, hell, you could even charge a nominal fee or see if you can get the time spent mentoring as independent study credits.
