Schedule with a Financial Well-being Ambassador
Financial Well-being Ambassadors encourage their peers to take responsibility for their financial future by offering coaching and education and resources to meet individual financial goals. During one-on-one sessions, students:
- Improve their financial understanding.
- Learn how to reduce debt and increase savings.
- Gain confidence.
- Establish strategies to help decrease financial concerns.
As a piece of overall well-being, financial concerns can greatly impact other elements of well-being. Ambassadors will discuss finances, while also addressing wholistic well-being. View common topics for sessions.
