City of Eagle Butte, SD
Making Waves - Eagle Butte: is a comprehensive program designed by Four Bands Community Fund to replace poverty and unemployment with financial literacy and entrepreneurship. After years of successfully implementing Making Waves in our local communities on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation, Four Bands Community Fund is making this program available to all rural communities. The ultimate goal of the Making Waves program is to plant the seeds of financial literacy and entrepreneurship among youth so that they will have the knowledge and skills needed to make money matter and create their own jobs. The Making Waves Teacher Toolkits provide a multitude of lessons and exercises that teach youth how to make good choices about their finances so that they avoid pitfalls that result in damaged credit histories, paycheck to paycheck spending, and few or no assets.
