Financial Skills for Families: Train-the-Trainer Workshop

  • Oklahoma City Community College (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

FREE Training: "Building Native Communities: Financial Skills for Families"

You are invited to attend a First Nations Development Institute Building Native Communities (BNC) train-the-trainer on October 23-25, 2018, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  

This free of charge training, organized by the Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition, Inc. (ONAC), is co-sponsored by First Nations Development Institute, ONAC, the Native Alliance Against Violence, Choctaw Asset Building, Bank2, and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Victim Services. 

BNC trainings are designed to provide Native-specific and culturally relevant financial education training for those who will then teach (or already do teach) financial education to Native communities.   If you are new to teaching financial education, this is a great way to receive certification, so you may more confidently teach classes in your tribal communities.  For those already teaching classes, this training is designed to help you refresh your skills and have access to updated curriculum materials.  On the final day of the training, participants are invited to take a test so they may be a certified Building Native Communities trainer. 

Native-specific financial education trainings, such as BNC trainings, acknowledge the broader understanding Native communities have about assets, as assets not only being money but also sovereignty, kinship, Native languages and arts, natural resources, etc.  The training materials include culturally relevant examples and note the ways Native communities have been saving for generations.  Tribes and Native nonprofits may choose to integrate Native financial education into their other asset building programs.   

 

Register HERE

 

Who Should Attend this Native-Specific Financial Education Training? 

Tribal leaders, tribal program directors and other staff, Native nonprofits, Native asset building practitioners, college students interested in helping to teach financial education in their tribal communities or at ONAC Children’s Savings Account opening events, tribal housing authorities, domestic violence advocates, state agencies, federal programs, inter-tribal organizations, financial institutions, and others interested in utilizing Native-specific financial education curriculum.  

Training Sponsors

This training is sponsored by First Nations Development Institute, the Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition, Inc. (ONAC), Native Alliance Against Violence, Choctaw Asset Building, Bank2, and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Victim Services. 

Training Location

The training will be held at the Oklahoma City Community College, located at 7777 South May Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73159.  The training room is located in the campus library, the Keith Leftwich Memorial Library, room 407.  During the training, we will provide a handout of nearby restaurants where training participants may choose to eat lunch.   There are two elevators available in the library, if needed to help participants access the training room.   The community college recommends that training participants park in Parking Lot B, by the library, and enter the library through the north doors.  Lot B may be accessed from SW 74th Street.  Here is a link to the campus map: http://myatlascms.com/map/?id=468#!s/key=Library?m/65276.
