Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults

February 8 – February 24, 2022 
Tuesdays and Thursdays
1:00 pm-3:00 pm MT

Oweesta Corporation is pleased to announce our financial education curriculum Building Native Communities: Financial Empowerment for Teens & Young Adults. Held virtually over February 8-24, 2022, the training will be conducted on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3pm MT.

Financial literacy is an essential skill on the path to a healthy financial well-being and vital to building an empowered financial foundation for Native communities and strengthening Tribal economies. Our youth need these skill sets to help bridge the gap between a novice and an expert in financial literacy knowledge, including knowing the difference between spending money versus managing money. This curriculum focuses on building important life skills like budgeting, developing a spending plan, saving, paying bills, building a nest egg, paying for an education, buying a home, investing, etc. Join us for a 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.

This multi-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
