In honor of a quarter century of financial education, Teach Children to Save is now easier and more fun than ever—both for bankers, and for kids. Whether you impart personal finance knowledge on Teach Children to Save Day or any day of the year, you’ll already be part of the party!

Help elementary and middle schoolers in your community learn good savings habits through free, banker-led outreach opportunities. Whether you raise financial awareness in your branch, through digital platforms, community events or virtual presentations, you can meet your audience where they are with ease. To celebrate our silver jubilee, we’re pulling out all the stops! Get ready for the launch of new, engaging videos that cover topics that matter most to our financial education mission. Screen these videos whenever you’d like, and your K-8 audience will be at the edge of their seats.
