Skills Learning in Program Areas

YWCA St. Paul recently hosted other local service providers for a Financial Literacy–Train the Trainer event. Our staff was joined by staff from Ujamaa PlaceProject for Pride in LivingBetter Futures MinnesotaThe Cultural Wellness Center and My Brother’s Place. YWCA St. Paul collaborated with these nonprofit organizations to develop an African American culturally specific financial literacy curriculum that can be shared with their respective program participants.

For YWCA St. Paul, this curriculum is complemented by a new written soft skills curriculum for program participants developed under the direction of Assistant Director of Programs Nikki Beasley.

The soft skills curriculum covers a range of topics including critical thinking, communication and time management. It also provides guidance for the staff/trainers as well as workbooks for the participants. Staff are excited to see the curriculum being rolled out across all our programs as we work to continually improve how we prepare program participants to succeed after exiting our programs.
