In MY MONEY MENTORS, financial experts Jacqueline Schadeck and Chris Corinthian team up to guide young adults through financial milestones and challenges, infusing fun and engagement to enhance their ability to make smart money moves. Each episode features the duo meeting with a mentee to tackle financial challenges, address mental and emotional hurdles, and boost financial literacy, empowering them to make wise choices and take charge of their financial future.

“I know what it’s like to get poor financial advice because my family did, and we lost everything,” says Schadeck. “I hope this show helps to illustrate to younger people just how important financial matters are.  What’s more – I hope they see we can have some fun with it, too.”

Corinthian adds, “Having faced financial hardships, I understand the profound impact these challenges can have on individuals and families. Recent news stories have highlighted the unique struggles of Millennials and Gen Z, such as the dream of homeownership seeming out of reach. Our mission is to empower others with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate these hurdles and achieve lasting financial wellness.” 

“My Money Mentors is a great addition to WABE’s programming, and viewers will relate to the common financial issues being addressed and benefit from the expert, actionable advice provided,” says Hank Halter, Delta Community’s chief executive officer. “As a not-for-profit, service-oriented financial cooperative, Delta Community strives to deliver exceptional support, value, and counsel on the banking services consumers need through every stage of life. We respect Jacqueline and Chris’s passion and skill as independent hosts and are pleased to help bring the show to air.”
