MONEY MATTERS: Make it Count – Financial Education for Teens

money matters 2As bankers, we know the importance of instilling good financial habits at an early age.  That is why we are excited to be associated with Money Matters: Make It Countscreen-shot-2016-09-13-at-11-07-51-am, a national finance program for teens created in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The program is geared toward educating teens on the important and unavoidable financial hurtles they will encounter through their teenage years into adulthood.

Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Boys & Girls Club members ages 13 to 18. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, create a budget, save and invest, start small businesses and pay for college.  The Money Matters website helps teens build their money management skills through interactive activities, games and tools such as a savings and financial aid calculator to help them plan for college.

The Money Matters program was the topic of discussion at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington’sscreen-shot-2016-09-13-at-11-07-51-am Youth Partnership Luncheon on October 16 and of which Regents Bank was proud to have once again sponsored – our fifth straight year doing so! We value our relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs and feel privileged to  help with this event.

The Clubs provide Clark County youth with safe and positive places to go, equipped with supportive and caring adults, structured programs, the opportunity to set goals and the tools to achieve them.

At this year’s luncheon, Regents Bank’s Executive Vice President and Regional Manager Tami Nesburg had the honor of introducing the luncheon’s keynote speaker — Ms. Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz. Ms. Schwab-Pomerantz is president of the Charles Schwab Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization funded by The Charles Schwab Corporation whose mission is to help people achieve financial well-being.

Under her leadership, the Foundation has established the Money Matters program.

At Regents Bank, we have witnessed the success of youth at the Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Washington, in school and in our community. We are proud to support such an important and effective organization.
