Young Adult Mentoring Program
Mission: The Young Adult Mentoring Program (YAMP) of the Minnesota Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy provides financial education and mentoring to young Minnesota adults who are living independently with limited family support, such as young adults aging out of the foster care system.
Vision: YAMP envisions a Minnesota where all young adults, including those aging out of foster care and others living independently with limited family support, have the knowledge and capacity to manage their personal financial resources effectively as they assume the responsbilitlies of independent adult living.
YAMP was first piloted by the Minnesota Jump$tart Coalition with the assistance and cooperation of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the Financial Planning Association of Minnesota and the social service agency Face to Face. These partners continue to work on refining the program and hope to improve and expand it over time.
