Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that raises awareness about the important role that bank employees play in helping young people develop life-long saving habits. For the past several years, Central Bank has offered this program to K-6 teachers at Branson Schools. This year four bank employees delivered 37 presentations to classes that reached approximately 1,000 students.
“We believe a strong financial education base is vital to an individual’s success later on in life,” said Central Bank of Branson President and CEO Craig Richards. “Planting the seed of saving money at a young age helps to build the foundation of financial stability for the rest of their lives.”
The Teach Children to Save program uses lessons that bring together real life and classroom learning, incorporating hands-on scenarios and children’s experiences to help them understand the basic principles of using money wisely. Lessons explore saving, wants vs needs, budgeting, prioritizing and much more.
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign of volunteer bankers who since 1997 have helped young people develop life-long savings habits.
Central Bank of Branson has been serving the financial needs of the Tri-Lakes Area since 1950. For more information on the bank you can visit them on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/CentralBankBranson or online at www.CentralBankBranson.net.
