Saturday, April 12th – Second Saturdays Classes
Each month we host a unique learning experience 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.
Over the past weeks, the Youth Advisory Board members have hidden hundreds of coins and candy in plastic eggs throughout Young Americans. But they can’t remember where they put them all!
Come join us on Saturday, April 12 at 11:30am to help find the money hidden throughout Young AmeriTowne, International Towne, and Young Americans Bank. The best part? You get the keep all the coins and candy you find!
There will also be cupcakes and lemonade provided by our own young entrepreneurs, plus some fun financial activities like money bingo. Come early to the Second Saturday class at 10:30, then stay for the hunt that starts at noon.
