Make Change NoCo hosts FINRA-sponsored financial education training program

Join Make Change NoCo for a two-part financial education training program for human service professionals, faith-based community members, K-16 educators, human resource professionals, and financial education volunteers in Northern Colorado. Session 1 will be February 14 and 15, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church in Fort Collins. Session 2 will be April 10 and 11, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Made possible by a grant from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation through a partnership with United Way Worldwide, this program will strengthen your financial education content knowledge so you can help individuals and families in your organization, church group, or institution work toward financial stability. Learn more about relevant and trusted financial education resources in our community and gather usable money management tools and education techniques. You’ll walk away with a portfolio of practical skills, resources, and activities you can use with your clients, students, colleagues, or staff.

Presented by Laurel Kubin, director of Larimer County Extension, topics covered include poverty and culture, creating and managing spending plans, credit reports and scores, debt management, avoiding fraud, and many others. The cost is $30 for one session or $50 for both. Scholarships are available. Financial education resources, breakfast, and lunch are included.

Please register by February 8. For more information or an application, contact Kyle Christensen at [email protected] or 970.498.6013 or visit
