How to open a bank in a k-8th grade school … with student’s in charge
Start teaching kids … as well as their parents …. to become fiscally prudent
Dr. Edward Anhalt says 97% of kids learn about money from their parents … and they aren’t the best mentors . The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) announced its exclusive agreement with Banking on Kids, which is a financial literacy program offered to community banks throughout the country. This program will help educate America’s youth about the value of saving money and the importance of being financially stable. It is yet another resource that community banks can use as part of local financial literacy efforts and programs.
“Teaching children about the importance of financial education at a young age is a great way to encourage financial literacy in adulthood,” said Bill Loving, ICBA chairman and president and CEO of Pendleton Community Bank, Franklin, W.Va.
