This training will offer a three-day, state-of-the-art instructor training and certification program to help Native CDFIs, tribes and other Native organizations establish and sustain financial education programs in their communities. We will be accepting registration applications to attend this training until March 1, 2019, or until filled.

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 KeyBank Foundation, this training has no registration fees. Therefore, the only cost to you will be travel and accommodations.

Upon completion of the training, participants will be prepared to successfully pass the Building Native Communities: Financial Skills for Families 5th Edition certification exam, becoming BNC-certified financial education trainers.
