PeoplesBank is proud to support financial literacy in our local communities through the PeoplesBank Financial Scholars Program. Through this program, we provide students at local elementary, middle, and high schools with free online financial literacy courses. We have helped hundreds of children build their financial capability and learn good financial habits. Students learn about a wide range of financial topics, including income and careers, budgeting, credit cards, saving, and investing. Each course is tailored to the students’ grade level to ensure the learning incorporates real-world scenarios. Learn more about our financial literacy levels below.
Money Made Easy (Pre-K – 2nd Grade)
Guide students in building the basics of understanding currency while having fun with coins. Through the exploration of children’s literature, story problems, and hands-on activities, students begin to develop connections between coins and bills and the concept of using money to make purchases.
Saving for a Rainy Day (Pre-K – 2nd Grade)
Encourage students to consider various reasons to save, including for a “rainy day.” Students will learn about savings goals and creating a rainy day fund to pay for unexpected expenses.
Snacks & Stories
Help students learn about financial literacy with a twist on the classic game of MadLibs™. Students will take turns
providing words to complete a story. Once the story is complete, it will be shared and discussed as a group. Or, choose a classic story time experience with corresponding activities. Students will be provided with a snack to
enjoy during story time and a PeoplesBank swag bag.
MadLibs™ Style: Pre-K – 2nd Grade
Classic Style: 2nd – 4th Grade
