Empowering Students with Financial Knowledge


PUBLISHED November 2, 2018

It’s always exciting when we can help students get a head start on their financial future! In partnership with Operation HOPE, our bank recently hosted a Banking On Our Future financial literacy day for over 170 fourth and fifth grade students at Mildred B. Janson Elementary, a Title I school located in Rosemead, CA.

Nearly 20 bank associates volunteered to teach the financial literacy course which covered topics such as the basics of budgeting, checking and savings.  Students learned how to distinguish between a need and want, set a budget, write a check, and more.

Many thanks to our volunteers for empowering these students with financial knowledge!
