Classes and Workshops
Young Americans offers numerous opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning experiences, centered on financial literacy. Many of these events are free, so please check out the details below.
Second Saturdays at Young Americans Great way for families to learn about money together
Girl Scout Badge Classes We do the financial literacy badge for Girls Scouts.
YouthBiz Workshops Help young entrepreneurs learn about and develop business opportunities
Join us the second Saturday of each month for a unique learning experience, designed especially for youth, ages 3-12, 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.
Second Saturdays are perfect for families 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.
Time Activities last from 10:30 – 11:30 am. Bank accounts may be opened immediately following the activities.
Location 3550 E. 1st Ave. Denver, CO 80206

Special Instructions Please bring photo identification and a social security/ITIN number if you would like to open a new account for your child.
