Educational Classes

Attend free classes to learn financial life skills, including how to get started with your new account, and preparing for your financial future. Stick around after classes for food, fun, and the chance to win gift cards while participating in a group activity.

Starting Out — Calling all teens new to banking!  Join us to chat about all things related to your new account — the differences between checking and savings, and how to set goals and monitor your finances through online and mobile banking, including direct deposit, alert tools and more.

Financial Adulting — Did you know financial decisions made today can impact your future? Students ages 16+ will benefit from this deeper dive into preparing for adulthood, from a financial perspective. We’ll work through creating a budget, keeping your identity and credit safe in a digital world, and tips for saving so you’ll be in a good position to make bigger purchases when the time comes.
