Children's Aid Scholars Study and Save with Citi
On Wednesday April 9, Citi celebrated its National Teach Children to Save initiative with a kickoff event at College Prep Charter School (CACPCS) and C.S. 211. Teach Children to Save is a program developed by the American Bankers Association to raise awareness about the important role banker’s play in helping young people develop lifelong savings habits.
Children's Aid staff and scholars were excited to welcomed Citi U.S. Consumer & Commercial Banking President Cece Stewart, NFL star Justin Tuck, and Deputy Mayor Rich Buery, who would lead the day’s activities. Local Citi branch volunteers offered financial literacy workshops to CACPCS first and second graders and C.S. 211 middle school students on the importance of saving for the future and healthy money habits, such as understanding needs versus wants and spending money wisely. Justin Tuck encouraged the young scholars to keep saving and studying.
