Register Now for Foundation's Train-the-Trainer Workshops
Friday, June 30, 2017 6:35 AM

Join us for workshops in Little Rock on July 7 and Oklahoma City on Aug. 24

Online registration is open for the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation's FOCUS Train-the-Trainer workshops for the following dates and locations:

  • July 7, 2017 – Little Rock, Ark.
  • Aug. 24, 2017 – Oklahoma City, Okla.

These free, one-day workshops are designed to arm credit unions, educators, non-profit organizations, and community leaders with the skills they need to motivate young people into adopting positive saving and spending habits. The FOCUS Train-the-Trainer workshops cover Biz Kid$ and the National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program (NEFE HSFPP).

Biz Kid$ is a financial literacy initiative that includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, a website, and a monthly online newsletter targeting children 9-16 years old.

The NEFE HSFPP is a turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills that are relevant to the lives of pre-teens, teens, and young adults. Organized into six module topics (planning, borrowing, earning capability, investing, financial services, and insurance), the program includes student guides, an assortment of 45-minute teacher lesson plans, and a growing collection of online resources and learning activities.

In addition to providing the scheduled Train-the-Trainer events, the Foundation will also conduct private Train-the-Trainer sessions which can be customized for your group. You provide the facility and the people, and the Foundation will conduct the training! A minimum of 16 educators is required for a private Train-the-Trainer session. For more information, please contact Courtney Moran at 469-385-6448 or cmoran@cscuf.coop.
