Money Management Training
Ronald Traverse completed SEED’s Money Management Training in 2014, then accessed SEED’s Saving Circle program to purchase new furniture. Ronald’s relationship continued with SEED this past year when he saved money through the Individual Development Account (IDA) program, and was then hired to be a Junior Facilitator with the Money Stories program.
I like the fact that Indigenous youth get a chance to go around the community and share our stories
Junior Facilitators study to be successful facilitators while learning more about their culture, Community Economic Development (CED) principles, leadership, and teachings from Indigenous Elders.
Ronald says teaching people financial literacy from an Indigenous point of view has helped with his personal growth.
“I like the fact that Indigenous youth get a chance to go around the community and share our stories,” says Ronald. “It makes me feel appreciated for who I am.”
