National Training: Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults

November 13 @ 8:00 am - November 15 @ 5:00 pm

First Nations Oweesta Corporation is pleased to announce our newly developed financial education curriculum, Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults, in partnership with Freddie Mac, November 13-15 in Denver, Colorado.

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 being a novice or 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, building a nest egg, paying for an education, buying a home, investing, etc. Join us for a two and a half-day, state-of-the-art, interactive instructor training to help Native CDFIs, Tribal communities, and other Native organizations establish and sustain financial education programs tailored for youth in our communities.

We will be accepting registration applications to attend this training until October 30th, or until filled. Early and quality applications will be prioritized, so please register early and fully complete the ]registration application. First Nations Oweesta will provide travel information to assist you with planning when your application is selected. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis; please anticipate receiving notification from us within one week of submitting your application. Please do not make travel arrangements until your attendance has been confirmed. Due to the generosity of Freddie Mac, this training has no registration fees and there are travel stipends available (please apply HERE).

This two and a half-day training will cover:

  • Effective financial education training techniques, activities, and resources tailored for youth
  • An in-depth look at the Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults curriculum.
Upon completion of the training, participants will be prepared to take the financial education curriculum and teachings back to their Tribal communities to engage and empower their youth. The most important financial health lesson with the greatest ROI (return on investment) is educating our children on how to become financially fit and that is exactly the goal of the Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults curriculum.
