Teach Children to Save Day Resources

April is Financial Literacy Month

Each year in collaboration with the American Bankers Association Foundation, Katahdin Trust goes into local community classrooms and shares valuable financial literacy lessons with our youth. 
Once again, we're bringing the classroom to you! Take a look at some resources we have made available to you so that you can learn valuable money lessons, all from the convenience of your own home. 

If you are a school,  college, or organization, you can empower your community with personal finance skills by requesting a presentation from our team.
