WHAT WE DO:
In 1987, Bill Daniels founded Young Americans Bank as the world’s only bank designed specifically for young people 21 and under. He believed that America had the best financial system in the world and that everyone – young and old – should have access to that system.
The Bank’s success was overwhelming and soon requests for programs, tours and presentations poured in from teachers and parents. To fulfill those requests and support the community’s interest in growing a financially savvy generation of young people, Young Americans Center for Financial Education was established. This nonprofit entity allowed delivery of educational programs for youth of all ages to enhance the bank’s financial mission. The programs are designed to complement and reinforce each other to build life skills, work skills and financial self-sufficiency.

WHAT WE NEED:
Since inception, more than 500,000 youth have benefited from holding accounts at the Bank and participating in the nonprofit programs of the Center. However, we are always looking to extend our reach to new communities, schools and families. Join us!
