Why is Financial Literacy Important?
Once kids know proper money management skills, they tend to keep them and use them throughout their lives. Early financial literacy teaches kids how to have a good relationship with money, an invaluable lifelong skill that won’t ever be forgotten.
At Range Bank, we recognize the importance of financial literacy in our communities and are committed to providing resources that empower students to make smart financial decisions. Through our award-winning Financial Literacy program we are now providing lessons and learning to our elementary, middle and high school students relating to the importance of Financial Literacy.
