Teach Children to Save Day

The FAU Center for Economic Education is teaming up with the School District of Palm Beach County to start a district-wide Teach Children to Save Day. This program will partner local financial institution professionals with elementary school classes to teach children about the importance of savings. In the program, financial professionals present a specifically designed curriculum to elementary school classes. The concept of the program is to have students taught by professionals in the industry – providing the students with insights into the banking and financial industry as well as learning about saving.

If you or your financial institution is interested in participating next year, please send an email with your name and financial institution to Bill Bosshardt at the FAU Center for Economic Education: econed@fau.edu.
