Four Cornerstones of Financial Literacy Train-the-Trainer Workshop
Thu, May 4, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, May 5, 2017, 4:00 PM MDT
CAP Utah is pleased to present: This is a two-day “train-the-trainer” workshop on the Four Cornerstones of Financial Literacy curriculum and the learning circle method, a technique that builds upon the life experiences of participants. Training participants will learn the technical financial information included in the curriculum, and gain skills in facilitating training and group sessions for people with low incomes.
May 4 - 5, 9am - 4pm both days.
The Four Cornerstones curriculum strives to build financial empowerment through 4 core areas of financial literacy:
- Budgeting to Create Savings - Budgeting that works, finding ways to save, organizing bills.
- Debt Reduction & Asset Building -How to deal with each type of debt, dealing with collections, building assets.
- Building a Good Credit Rating - How to get one and read it, how to build good credit and improve bad credit.
- Consumer Protection & Financial Institutions - Resources and rights, scams to avoid, dealing with financial institutions.
Because training relies heavily on attendee participation and interactive exercises, participants must attend both training days. Participants will receive the Four Cornerstones curriculum, which can be integrated into financial literacy education and self-sufficiency services that their agencies provide.
Lunch will be served on both days. Government employees can receive the government per diem rate for room reservations at RL.
CAA agencies can send two individuals for free, with a suggested donation of $20 per additional attendee. Community Members and Partners are welcome to attend with a suggested donation of $20.
