In this training, we will define financial coaching, provide financial capability content and demonstrate the benefits of using coaching in helping people to achieve financial success. This program uses the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s “Your Money, Your Goals,” a comprehensive financial empowerment toolkit created for financial coaches, caseworkers, and other human service professionals in various roles to support the integration of financial education into their one-on-one work with clients. Materials will be provided to you digitally – if you are able to print them, please do, if you are not, please request them on the registration form.
