Project Title:
Building Native Communities Financial Coaching with Families
Consumer Financial Education Fund, 2019
Project Description:

This project supports train-the-trainers activity for Native American-specific financial education. Oweesta previously developed a curriculum and training, Building Native Communities: Financial Coaching with Families. It is an innovative, Native-specific financial coaching model which provides tools, resources, and an approach that helps Native CDFIs, Native nonprofits, and Tribal participants build capacity by training financial coaches, providing a coaching toolkit, and providing technical assistance to integrate financial coaching into their programs. Funding will support three free trainings, certification of another team member as a financial coach to increase training capacity, and providing technical assistance and free copies of the curriculum to training participants. Helping Oweesta’s partners build financial coaching capacity will strengthen the overall capacity of groups and will magnify the impact of existing services in the lives of their borrowers and clients.
