The process of creating any kind of good habit typically occurs more naturally when started earlier on in life. That premise is put to task every April through the American Bankers Association Teach Children to Save (TCTS) program. The free national initiative, which is sponsored annually by the ABA Foundation, organizes banker volunteers throughout the year to help young people develop a savings habit early in life. NVE Bank is a proud perennial participant!
Teach Children to Save Day is an annual awareness day during which bankers demonstrate their commitment to the community by educating today’s youth about the value of saving money. Participating bankers visit schools, youth centers, after-school programs and other sites to share their knowledge in an effort to inspire children to start young and save more. Presentations include activities centered on the concepts of saving, earning interest, and determining needs versus wants.
NVE Bank’s branch managers have been teaching lessons to students since earlier this month, such as those at The Right Start Learning Center in Teaneck. However, on TCTS Day, which actually occurs on April 28th this year, more of our branch managers will be teaching lessons at other Bergen County schools, including The Hillside School in Closter and the Englewood Charter School.
While banks are encouraged to participate on TCTS Day and throughout April, which is Financial Literacy Month, we at NVE Bank believe that financial education is paramount year-round. That’s why we invest in education programs throughout the year to ensure that our younger generations are well prepared for their future. One example of this is Money Management 4 Kids, an innovative financial literacy program created by IPiggiBank with funding from NVE Bank. The eight-week program was delivered to first-graders at Bergen Family Center at the beginning of this year.
Here are a few photos from several branch managers’ lessons during last year’s TCTS school visits. Get all the latest news, information and pictures from this year’s program and more by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
