Financial coaching is an emerging practice that helps clients learn to set and achieve their financial goals.
Green Mountain United Way, in partnership with Capstone Community Action, presents Introduction to Financial Coaching. This interactive 4-day training is open to agency staff, volunteers, and peers and is a prerequisite to becoming a Financial Coach with Green Mountain United Way’s K.E.E.P. Financial Coaching Program. This program provides additional supports for coaches including one-on-one Master Coaching sessions, peer-to-peer support, and ongoing trainings by local and regional experts in finance and coaching practices, along with access to all course materials. This program builds individual coach’s skills while helping clients.

8:30 am to 4:30 pm All four training dates take place in Barre at Capstone Community Action.
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.
Join us for a light breakfast at 8:15 am, and the training starts promptly at 8:30 am. Lunch will be provided. The $100 fee covers instruction, materials, and food for all four days of the course.
