Teach children to save program

RBC I Participating in the American Bankers Association’s Teach Children to Save Program, First National Bank of the Rockies recently made presentations to a total of 655 students throughout the Western Slope. FNBR participates in the Teach Children to Save Program annually and has increased students reached by 20 percent so far this year.
“We’re happy to provide financial education opportunities to the youth of our communities,” FNBR president and CEO Pete Waller said. “Children learn spending habits early, and the goal of this program is educate them on the power of saving.”
Presenting to students from kindergarten through the fifth grade, nine FNBR employees visited a number of schools across the Western Slope. More presentations are scheduled for later this month. FNBR is still scheduling presentations for youth organizations and schools. Please contact Kristi Adams at 970-683-4556 or KristiA@fnbrockies.com to request a free presentation.
A decade ago, the American Bankers Association Education Foundation created the Teach Children to Save Program and National Teach Children to Save Day, which is held each April.
