WHAT WE DO:
The ABA Education Foundation, a nonprofit subsidiary of the American Bankers Association, provides financial education programs that help bankers empower their communities with financial knowledge. The foundation was founded in 1925 by bankers. It is guided by a board of banker advisors and works in partnership with leading financial education and banking trade groups.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Community Develop Opportunities for Banks
Through our national programs -- Teach Children to Save, Get Smart About Credit and Lights, Camera, Save! -- more than 1,300 banks nationwide connect with hundreds of thousands of students annually. Our programs rely on banker volunteers to leverage their local education and community contacts to raise awareness and provide financial education.
WHAT WE NEED:
Teachers or group leaders working with students who can benefit from a unique financial education experience through the Teach Children to Save program. The program, focused on how to save, why to save and where to save, provides banker volunteers opportunities to share their professional expertise with young consumers and respond to a critical societal need.
Teach Children to Save lessons are designed to meet personal finance education standards and reinforce concepts being taught in math, language arts and other disciplines. Teachers or group leaders can get involved by contacting a participating bank from the Teach Children to Save Honor Roll http://reporting.qualtrics.com/ABAEF.php?ALID=392821&report=TCTS2012 .
We hope you will agree that this is a great opportunity to help young people develop skills for financial success. For more information on the program, visit www.abaef.com and click on Teach Children to Save.
