Caminos to Empower Local Latinx

Caminos is the Spanish word for road.  Caminos is also an initiative that improves financial well-being and increases generational wealth by building financial and professional skills, which enhance financial equity over a lifetime.  Caminos was developed by UnidosUS, the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the U.S.  

St. Nicks Alliance is excited for the opportunity to match Latinx workers from our North Brooklyn Community to a financial counselor and empower for financial success and stability.

Recently UnidosUS partnered with DoorDash to implement a bilingual financial empowerment program that will feature financial coaching and workforce development programming.  The program will identify and recruit participants through local affiliates and the U.S. Dasher community.  St. Nicks Alliance is a Brooklyn affiliate for UnidosUS.  They will refer interested participants in their workforce development trainings and adult education classes to a financial coach who will guide them to managing their money.

“St. Nicks Alliance is excited for the opportunity to match Latinx workers from our North Brooklyn Community to a financial counselor and empower for financial success and stability.  We are also excited to welcome DoorDashers into our Adult Education and Skills Training programming and Financial Empowerment opportunities. This partnership is a great benefit to our Brooklyn community and we look forward to launching this tool for financial empowerment.” Said Larry Rothchild, Director of Workforce Development at St. Nicks Alliance To learn more go to: www.caminosunidos.com
