Teach Children to Save Day
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that raises awareness about the important role that banks and bankers play in helping young people develop lifelong savings habits. This national effort is supported by the American Bankers Association.
During this ICN, a representative from Wells Fargo will talk with your students about the importance of saving money and starting to save early in life. She will also discuss how banks work and the benefits of starting a bank account.
She will be showing your students how to use the Hands on Banking site to find tools to learn how to save. Hands on Banking is a free non-commercial financial literacy program that was created with funding from Wells Fargo.
The planned outcome of this session is that students will think about the benefits of saving money and, as they transition into middle school, will have this part of their financial education underway.
