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.

This three-day training will address:

  • Effective financial education training techniques and resources
  • An in-depth look at the Building Native Communities: Financial Skills for Families 5th Edition curriculum


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 certified financial education trainers. Participants must attend and complete all days of training, participate in an oral presentation, and pass the exam to be certified as an instructor.
