For years, the media touted a “nonprofit” that promised to help college graduates volunteer their way out of student loan debt. Except it wasn’t a nonprofit, and there’s no proof it helped anyone. Now SponsorChange has disappeared and the media is silent. What happened? And why does its founder insist it’s coming back soon?
Joe Pye started writing about debt and personal finance more than three years ago while attending Florida Atlantic Univerisity, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the student-run newspaper, the University Press.
Before graduating with a bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism, Pye placed as a finalist for the Mark of Excellence award by the Society of Professional Journalists Region 3 for feature writing and in-depth reporting.
Since taking a full-time position as associate editor at Debt.com in 2018, Pye has become a certified debt management professional who’s applied what he’s learned to his personal life by paying down more than $22,000 worth of combined credit card, student loan, auto and tax debt in less than two years.
