Train the Trainer – Financial Literacry Workshop in Hilo and Kona!


Hawaiian Community Assets (HCA) will be holding training for service providers, teachers, community leaders, and individuals on Big Island on how to start a youth financial education program using Kahua Waiwai: Building a Foundation of Wealth©, a financial education curriculum developed for and by Hawaii youth.  Since March 2009 HCA has trained over 70 trainers on how to teach money management skills using Kahua Waiwai and has built a statewide coalition of 40 community-based, financial, and educational organizations serving various populations. Collectively, HCA and its collaborative partners have brought free financial education training to over 500 Hawaii youth of all ages.

The following trainings are made possible through a grant from Hawaii County Research and Development Department as part of a project to serve 150 Big Island youth with age- and culturally-appropriate financial education in their own communities over the next year.  We also want to mahalo Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union for sponsoring our Kona training.
