Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults Curriculum Webinar

December 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us on this webinar as we roll-out this new curriculum designed to help Indigenous communities establish and sustain financial education programs tailored for youth. Join Native CDFIs and non-profits, Tribal communities or departments, and other Native organizations learn more about this exciting new resource designed for youth 14-22 years of age. We’ll take a deep dive into the seven different financial literacy lessons and extra credit supplements discussing student loans and per capita payments as well as share some useful budgeting templates.

Financial literacy is an essential skill on the path to a healthy financial well-being and vital to building an empowered financial foundation for all Native communities and strong Tribal economies. Our youth need these skill-sets to help bridge the gap between not knowing and surviving or knowing and thriving as an expert in financial literacy knowledge, which is the difference between simply understanding how money works and how to spend it, to important life skills like budgeting, developing a spending plan, savings, paying bills on time, building a nest egg, paying for an education, buying a home, investing, etc. Join us on this webinar to help Indigenous country – Tribes, Native CDFIs and non-profits, Tribal communities and/or departments, and other Native organizations establish and sustain financial education programs tailored for youth in our communities.
