In School Savings Program

In School Savings Program

Creating an Ongoing Partnership to Improve Financial Literacy for Students

Early in 2001, the UNO Center for Economic Education, OPS Conestoga Magnet School, and Wells Fargo Bank began meeting to create a real world experience for students that supported the school’s theme of economics and financial literacy and its saving curriculum. The outcome of these meetings was the first elementary in-school savings bank in recent Nebraska history. Since that year, several in-school savings only programs have been created with different school districts, local bank and credit union partners, and many successful student savers.

If you have a question or desire to learn more about this process, please contact the Nebraska Council or your local Center for more information.
