Get Smart About Credit

The Get Smart About Credit program--sponsored by the ABA Community Engagement Foundation--is a national campaign of volunteer bankers who work with young people to raise awareness about the importance of using credit wisely.

Get Smart About Credit Day 2017Approximately 6,300 bankers from more than 340 banks across the country participated in our 16th annual Get Smart About Credit campaign. ABA staff (pictured right) partnered with Harford, The Columbia Bank and Well Fargo to volunteer at Junior Achievement’s Finance Park facility in Landover, Maryland. More than 100 eighth grade students heard firsthand accounts from bankers about the importance of setting a budget to manage their money. ​

Join us for the next Get Smart About Credit Day on October 17, 2019.
