First Nations Development Institute is partnering with AIBL (American Indian Business Leaders) and teachers in the Gallup-McKinley County public schools to encourage Native youth to take the online financial literacy course at www.InvestNativeonline.org. The course covers topics related to personal finance, investing, and managing credit. First Nations Development Institute is offering participating students a chance to be entered into a lottery to win a free iPad or iPod. “We appreciate the support of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation in helping us offer an online personal finance course,” stated Michael E. Roberts, president of First Nations Development Institute. “We hope this will encourage more kids to learn about how to manage their personal finances. All they have to do is complete the 2-hour course and they will be entered to win an iPad.”“We know kids operate in a multi-media environment,” stated Sarah Dewees, Senior Director for Research, Policy, and Asset-Building Programs. “So we present the curriculum in video and audio format in addition to written form. We appreciate the partnership of AIBL and high school teachers in supporting this effort.” High school students who are interested in this curriculum can create an account and participate online at www.InvestNativeonline.org.
