Money Matters Classes

Money Matters Classes

Young Americans offers numerous opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning experiences, centered on financial literacy. Money Matters classes are a great way for families to learn about money together. We offer several types of classes on Saturdays, as well as summer classes. Many of these events are free, so please check out the details below!

Second Saturdays at Young Americans

Join us the second Saturday of each month for a unique learning experience, designed especially for youth, ages 3-8, and their parents.  Families attending our Second Saturdays classes will be treated to an interactive tour of Young Americans Bank, the only bank in the world for young people. Then, students and parents will participate in games and activities that teach young people about the importance of money and banking — and how parents can reinforce those lessons at home.

  • Coin Carnival (ages 3-5) – a variety of money-themed games that teach coin recognition and counting
  • Scavenger Hunt (ages 6-8) – explore Young Americans Bank by taking part in a special Scavenger Hunt

Second Saturdays are perfect for the family wanting to open a bank account.  Once the games are finished, kids have the opportunity to take advantage of a real-life, hands-on learning experience by opening a new savings account. If your child already has an account with Young Americans, Second Saturdays are an ideal way to participate in our referral program.
