Fidelity Bank has been selected to participate in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's Youth Savings Program pilot. The program seeks to identify and highlight promising approaches to offering financial education tied to the opening of safe, low-cost savings accounts for school-aged children.
The course materials are provided by the FDIC and are part of their Money Smart Financial Literacy curricula. They are designed to meet the needs of students in four grade groupings (PreK–2nd, 3rd–5th, 6th–8th, and 9th–12th). Each course provides age appropriate content designed to help each student acquire the skills necessary to manage their financial health for a life time
By introducing students to financial education at an early age, we will collaborate with schools to offer financial education and establish school-based savings programs. These programs help students learn how to more effectively manage their money, encourage age developmental savings habits at a formative age, and promote economic inclusion for entire families.
