Training: "Building Native Communities: Financial Coaching with Families"

December 11-13, 2018
Denver, Colorado

First Nations Oweesta Corporation is hosting a national training on its financial coaching for Native communities program. 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.
  • Expand clients' ability to find and evaluate the information needed to make financial decisions.

 

This hands-on, interactive training, facilitated in partnership with Seven Sisters Community Development Group, 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 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.
 
The training is free to participants, though you will need to pay for travel costs. There are limited spots available, and priority will be given to those who register first and are willing to commit to practicing their coaching skills for six months following the training. Please click here to fill out the registration application. 

Details on the meeting location and hotel accomodations will follow in an email with registration confirmation.
