Mission of Financial Education Programs at U.S. Bank
U.S. Bank is committed to helping individuals understand how to access funds and credit, how to establish a positive financial history, and the importance of saving and money management. Financial education fosters financial stability for individuals and for entire communities. The more people know about credit and banking services, the more likely they are to increase savings, start businesses, buy homes, and improve their financial health and well being.
Financial Education Programs and Services at U.S. Bank
Under the Financial Genius brand, U.S. Bank has united all aspects of financial capability.

Seminar topics range from basics of banking and credit responsibility to buying a home or starting a small business. Financial Education Seminars are provided to consumers of all ages.
