UW Extension Offers Master Money Manager Coach Course

A training program to help community organizations assist members and clients with basic money management is being offered through University of Wyoming Extension.

The Master Money Manager Coach program is Aug. 16-17 at the UW Extension office on the Laramie County Community College campus in Cheyenne.

Instructors will train participants how to work with individuals to improve their financial management skills.

The program is recommended for community organizations, nonprofits and agencies that want to help their clients better understand and manage their financial lives, says UW Extension Educator Juliet Daniels, coordinator of the program.

“It’s so important to be exposed to personal finance,” she says. "I look at the communities I serve, and the reality is that a lot of people could really benefit from having a coaching relationship with a trusted adviser to get themselves on track.”

The two-day training introduces coaches to the FDIC Money Smart curriculum, teaches basic adult learning principles and provides tools to use with clients to encourage adoption of positive money management behaviors.

"You don't have to be a financial expert to make a difference," Daniels says. "Our program will help anyone in a community organization work with their clients on money matters."

UW Extension is an arm of UW tasked with providing non-credit, lifelong learning programs in all Wyoming’s counties.

No knowledge of teaching or money management is necessary, Daniels says. A $125 registration fee covers the class, two lunches and snacks. Scholarships and sponsorships are available, and space is limited.

Open registration ends Aug. 10. For more information and to register, call Daniels at (307) 633-4383 or email juliet.daniels@uwyo.edu. More information also is available on the registration site.

Partial financial support comes from the John P. Ellbogen Foundation Fund for Wyoming Communities, Agriculture and Rural Living.
