Could you help us raise awareness of advice services and encourage students to develop their skills in budgeting and financial literacy? If so then consider applying to be a Money Buddy.
Money Buddies is a new volunteering project; by working with the Students’ Union and Student Support you will be trained and supported to create new information, share existing resources and promote information designed to help students manage their finances. Your own experiences as a student will be essential to inform students and come up with new and creative ways we can engage others.
The role is particularly useful to those looking to develop new and existing skills relating to literacy, idea generation, event planning, talking to others, and meeting skills or those who simply want a greater understanding of the university support systems. As well as receiving a certificate at the end of the year, we are working on having the roled recognise on your HEAR transcript upon completion of your course.
Molly Longden, Wellbeing Officer said:
"Being a Money Mentor is an incredible opportunity to further your skills and get that little buzz from supporting others. You’ll have the chance to develop your CV with real experiences of planning events and activities, pitching ideas, and working with others to share sometimes complex information in a simple and easy to understand way. You’ll also be supporting our core mission of helping Aber students to love student life and be ready for anything.”
Applications are now open. You’ll be invited to training and have regular catch-ups as a team of volunteers. Obviously there is some flexibility on attendance, but we’re keen for the project to be led by those involved, while also being supported by the Wellbeing Officer and Union Staff.
