Studies show that when given direct access to financial services, teens make healthy financial choices. By coupling a hands-on, culturally relevant, peer-led banking experience with proven financial literacy curricula, teens will experience, internalize, and ultimately lead a financially responsible life.
We have an opportunity to provide young people with the knowledge, skills, and opportunity to establish healthy financial futures at an early age, rather than having to provide costly credit repair or debt management services later on in their lives.
