Join us to celebrate teach children to save day Mar 28, 2013, 11:37 am By Heidi Carmack Pfaffroth

“Okay, so you’re saying you need money,” said Ken Burnett, director of training at Bank of American Fork, during a Teach Children to Save Day presentation. “How do you get money?”

“Sell small snakes!” answered one of the third graders.

“Help my grandma with groceries!” offered another student.

As the presentation went on, the students learned how they can make the most of what they earn—how to invest in their businesses, the value of money and how to save what they earn, even if their income is based on the current price of small snakes.

Again, this year Bank of American Fork is supporting the American Bankers Association’s National Teach Children to Save Day by supporting schools’ efforts to teach their children financial literacy throughout the month of April and during the year.

With the help of interactive activities, games, pictures and stories, children learn how to save their money and the importance of getting a head start on learning the benefits of building a sound financial future.

Research shows that today’s generations are less likely to save their money than any other generation. Teach Children to Save Day is designed to reverse the trend of spending and replaces it with the desire to save.

Our volunteers will provide your students with:

• Saving strategies designed for all age groups.

• Interactive games that show the value of saving.

• Tips for beginning to budget their money.

“I recently had the pleasure to observe a ‘Teach the Children to Save’ presentation given by Bank of American Fork. It was delightful to observe the interaction between the Bank’s trainers. The principles of saving were presented in fun ways, which the students are sure to remember.” Community Development Director for Financial Services Organization

“Thanks Bank of American Fork, we learned a lot about saving.” American Fork’s Greenwood Elementary 3rd Grade Students
