Our Youth Savings Account is Out of This World! 

Did you know that 1 in 5 teenagers in the United States lack basic financial literacy skills?1  Without these skills, kids find themselves facing decisions in adulthood that they're not prepared for - and those decisions can set them off in the wrong direction for the rest of their life. 

It's Never Too Early to Start Learning

At Education First, we understand that a child's exposure to financial education impacts their likelihood for success down the road - that's why we go out of our way to make learning engaging and fun.  Our C.A.F.E. Youth Savings Account is the perfect opportunity to introduce children ages 6-12 to the basic concepts of saving and earning money, and budgeting.  

Why C.A.F.E.?

The C.A.F.E. program engages kids on several different levels to stay active in their learning and savings.  

Upon opening an account, C.A.F.E. recruits are enrolled in D.I.P. , otherwise known as the Deposit Incentive Program.  Every month when your child comes into a branch and makes a deposit of $5 or more in their savings account, they are rewarded with unique C.A.F.E. swag.  Additionally, all recruits receive a quarterly newsletter, annual birthday card, and opportunity to strive for academic and civic excellence so they earn an invite to the Annual C.A.F.E. Achievement Awards Party held each summer.  There are also fun online games for recruits to challenge their math skills and help them explore their career interests.
