Meet Jorge Guerrero, a Senior Money Mentor from Valencia College at a local college event!
"Being a Money Mentor has helped me develop my abilities as a responsible adult and help others manage their finances and maximize our potential to succeed regardless of unexpected financial crises. I love doing what I do because I know how inaccessible certain tools of success are to high school students. With a single text message to our mentees, we can really make a difference in their chances of getting a quality higher education debt-free" - JorgeSPRING INTERNSHIP DURATIONStarts now!Ends June 30th
