On November 13, a Financial Education training session and workshop will be presented to the invited youth of Mille Lacs Band. The material covered is authored by the National Endowment for Financial Education with a stated goal of “how to help young people develop smart spending and saving habits that lead to self-sufficiency.”
The participating youth generally will be of high school age, looking to plan for the next step in education or workplace on their own. The informal format will be discussion based, looking to assist with individual planning.
Topics include “Smart Spending and Saving Habits,” “Identifying Values, Beliefs, and Traditions,” “Creating a Spending Plan,” and similar strategies designed to take some of the mystery out of the financial landscape.
This event is sponsored by the Band Assembly and coordinated by the Commissioner of Finance, Adam Valdez, with coordination of Jana Sam, Minor Trust/Per Capita office. These non-commercial educational sessions are offered without cost to participants and are facilitated by experienced financial professionals.
