Learn about Teach Your Children to Save Day

Teach Your Children to Save Day is an educational program that was established by the American Bankers Association (ABA), with the aim of encouraging kids to develop a good savings habit as early as possible in their financial life.

This is done through banking volunteers giving presentations to school kids to teach them specifically about saving money, but also about other financial matters such as spending, donating and investing. Volunteers can find out how to get involved through the ABA, with the association having teaching materials available that can be used as a starting point for preparing a fun and interesting talk.

Banks are encouraged to contact schools in their area about giving a presentation as part of their local community efforts and while a specific date is publicized each year for the day, the lectures can be done at any time throughout the year.
