COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - April is Teach Children to Save month and in order help kids begin the banking process, Wells Fargo has teamed up with some Muscogee County Schools.
Local bankers stopped by Marshall Middle School to speak with the 7th and 8th grade students about saving money.
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that works with schools and non-profit organizations to instill responsible money management at a young age.
Wells Fargo District Manager Sean Starkey told News Leader 9, "We definitely believe in catching students early to teach them about financial education, if nothing else to just teach them to be financially literate as they grow up and to teach them to be self-sufficient as well."
The program teaches kids to start saving, and it also teaches them ways to spend responsibly and begin charitable giving.
Wells Fargo's Teach Children to Save reaches students from kindergarten to college.
