With funding from the Xcel Energy Foundation, Spirit of the Sun has offered two Urban Native Entrepreneurial Training sessions each year since 2014. These sessions are led by business professionals are designed to support Native individuals living in the Metro Denver Area in developing micro-enterprises, often based around their creation and sale of traditional art including beading, weaving, etc. In the past, these training’s have catered to a Native elder audience. Beginning in 2016, Spirit of the Sun will shift its focus to urban Native youth ages 13-25 and their economic development needs.
This September topics include:
- Creating a spending plan
- Building and keeping my credit
