Jul 11 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

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: for ages 3-5; a variety of money-themed games that teach coin recognition and counting
  • Scavenger Hunt: for 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.
