Learning the value of a dollar.
As a financial institution we are deeply interested in helping young people become wise stewards of their money. We feel that financial literacy is a very important skill that our youth should have in order to be successful in their adult lives. This is why, after much research, we have partnered with a nationally recognized educator to offer an online financial literacy program to local high school students.
This program teaches students through the user of varioius life scenarios - where they are creating budgets, paying various types of bills and navigating taxes. By using tehnology as a platform instead of traditional text books, the learning becomes much more fun and engaging for the students. Many schools across the country have embraced this program and made it part of their class curriculum.
