Helping Students Build a Solid Financial Foundation

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.
