Student Debt Clinic: Train-the-Trainer Workshop
2-day workshop
Saturday, Feb. 9, 9am – 4:30pm
Sunday, Feb. 10, 9am – noon

As a union, we are fighting to make college affordable and student debt manageable. However, 44 million people in the United States, including many AFT-IFT members and their family members are saddled with student loan debt.

Many struggle to make monthly payments but are confused about how to tell scams from genuine help when it comes to debt forgiveness.

At the completion of this Student Debt Clinic: Train-the-Trainer course, participants will have the information and resources they will need to set up a Student Debt Clinic for their members or prospective members to assist them in managing their student debt.

Workshop topics will include:
  • Information on how to enroll in income-driven student loan repayment programs.
  • Resources to help in enrolling in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
  • Curriculum that demonstrates the power of our union in improving the lives of
    our members and the people in our communities.
This training will be offered for a minimum of 10 participants
