Description: Please join us for Oweesta Corporation’s national training, Building Native Communities: Financial Coaching for Families! This training will draw on fundamental Native values, returning us to the grounded belief that our clients must be the agents of change in their own lives. Participants will learn how to do the following:
- Support your clients to focus on strengthening their financial mindset and behavior so that they are better able to reach their financial goals;
- Improve clients’ ability to absorb financial shock;
- and Expand clients’ ability to find and evaluate the information needed to make financial decisions.
This hands-on, interactive training will provide tools, resources, and an approach that will empower financial educators to engage in one-on-one coaching relationships with their clients. The training, funded in part through the generosity of Rose Foundation, is designed to build on the skills and knowledge of the Building Native Communities: Financial Skills for Families curriculum and assumes practitioners have an understanding of personal financial concepts.
