Your Money, Your Goals is a financial empowerment toolkit created by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that equips frontline staff with tools and skills to empower clients in understanding their own financial situations and connects them to resources available in their community.
University of Minnesota Extension’s mission is to meet the needs of our individuals, families and communities across Minnesota. Training staff across the state is one way we are able to build financial capability at the individual and organizational level. At the end of the YMYG training session, participants will feel confident in using the toolkit to help increase the financial knowledge and skills of the individuals and families they work with each day.
