WEBINAR – Supporting Financial Wellness With Online Tools

Supporting Financial Wellness Webinar

Webinar Information

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, online financial coaching, education tools and FinTech were starting to revolutionize access to financial knowledge and products. Social distancing measures have made online financial inclusion more important than ever to economically vulnerable households.

NALCAB member Building Skills Partnership will share how they support program participants in accessing FinTech apps and online resources to help meet their personal goals, as well as how they created their own branded app to serve as an information hub for their participants. They’ll share lessons on how to integrate FinTech tools into programmatic work and what considerations should be made for planning, implementation, staff training, fundraising, security protocols, and outreach.
