Receive Individualized Support
…with your own Member Advocate Team
CEF pairs members with two student volunteers who will work as long-term “Member Advocates.” CEF thoroughly trains volunteers to provide this two-on-one support, giving students and members the opportunity for a uniquely mutual and inter-generational learning exchange. Overwhelmingly, members cite the relationships formed with volunteers as even more critical to their success than savings and financial services. This relationship-based approach builds trust before building assets, and is the key ingredient to CEF’s work among especially vulnerable communities.
