Oklahoma Bankers teach the importance of saving on National Teach Children to Save Day!

Today's teens are active consumers, spending $180 billion annually. But are they saving in addition to spending? To enlighten our youth on the importance of saving, Oklahoma bankers will teach savings lessons through the state in honor of the 12th annual National Teach Children to Save Day, a program sponsored by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation. Keep reading to see which Oklahoma banks are participants in this year's efforts.


Teach Children to Save presentations incorporate games and activities into lessons on

the concept of saving, how interest makes money grow, how to create a budget and differentiate between needs and wants. Since the Foundation launched the Teach Children to Save Day program in 1997, more than 50,000 banker volunteers have reached nearly 2.3 million students with saving lessons.
