The TS Institute was created in 2009 to collaborate with the school system to promote financial literacy. The goal of the program is to provide students, K-12, with the knowledge to make sound financial decisions.
The student bank is designed to:
Introduce the economic concept of saving money at an early age and reinforce this idea throughout the elementary curriculum
Demonstrate that saving money should be part of a student’s personal financial plan for his or her future
Increase parental involvement in children’s lives through banking activity
Bob Mantell, TS InstituteDirector, says, “We are very excited to launch our first student bank in the Treynor Schools and look to connect with other local school districts to establish more student banks. We have a long-term vision and desire for this program to reach far beyond state lines and really make this a nationwide initiative.”
