High School Financial Literacy Program
Youth financial education is an important part of our community involvement. Since 2011, Monroe Bank & Trust has sponsored EverFi online curriculum, now in 20+ local high schools and several elementary schools. Our partners at EverFi are offering a national 529 College Savings Scholarship to 5 winning students. Entries must be received by January 19th, 2018 at 5:00pm EST.
Students at Airport High School in Carleton, Michigan utilize the EverFi financial literacy online course in class.
MBT added the nationally-recognized EverFi interactive online financial literacy program to our list of outreach options in 2011, addressing the need for high school financial education. As a service to high schools within our market, MBT absorbs the per-school licensing cost of the EverFi program so schools can benefit from EverFi at no cost.
We know that financially literate children are more likely to become financially literate adults. If you develop bad habits early they grow into worse habits later. Financial literacy may not be exciting but it’s important, and student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt.
- EverFi is the nation’s leading education organization that teachers, assesses, and certifies students in critical life skills, including Financial Literacy.
