Teach Children to Save

Teach Children to Save (TCTS), is a free national program sponsored by the American Bankers Association. The program organizes volunteer bankers to help children develop good savings habits early in life. During the month of April, First Federal employees visit local schools and present to second and third grade classrooms on the importance of saving. All graduates receive a $10 account starter deposit.

Due to school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering this presentation in a digital format. Use the video below as a guide as you work your way through the worksheets.
