Thousands of Students Learn Value of Saving from Bank of Hawaii Volunteers | Business
16th Annual Teach Children to Save Day an Opportunity for Students at Jefferson Elementary School to Learn Important Life Lessons
Throughout April, Bank of Hawaii volunteers broke out their paper, pencils and calculators to teach thousands of students across the state the importance of saving money. On Tuesday, Bank of Hawaii volunteers visited 400 students at President Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Waikiki for Teach Children to Save Day. Volunteers coached students in kindergarten through fifth grade with interactive lessons aimed to develop lifelong saving habits.
Throughout the month of April, more than 175 Bank of Hawaii (BOH) volunteers taught financial literacy lessons to almost 4,000 students from 31 elementary, middle and high schools across the state for Teach Children to Save. BOH volunteers worked with students at 15 schools on Oahu, and 16 schools on the neighbor islands.
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign that encourages financial literacy for children through age-appropriate lessons like "Dollars and Cents Sense," "Saving for a Sunny Day," "Easy Come, Easy Go" and more.
Teach Children to Save works to partner banks with students for lessons on the importance of saving. For more information on Teach Children to Save, visit www.teachchildrentosave.com.
