Teach Children to Save

Geared toward grades K-8, Teach Children to Save (TCTS), is a free national program sponsored by the American Bankers Association Foundation, that organizes banker volunteers throughout the year to help young people develop a savings habit early in life. Bankers registered to participate in the program will receive access to a private resource page containing promotional materials, student activities, communication tools and presentation lessons (also available in Spanish) covering topics that include Banking Careers, Decision Making, Interest, Money Recognition and Savings. Banks of all sizes that actively provide youth financial education, using any curriculum, are invited to register their participation in TCTS at no cost. Teach Children to Save Day is held in April, but the lessons can be taught at any time throughout the year.
