The Community Spirit Bank, in partnership with award-winning EverFi Financial Literacy Program, is delivering online financial education courses to nine area schools in the United States. Dubbed 'Money$mart,' the intent behind the initative is to shape the way youngsters think about money. From management and savings to investments and spending habits, nowadays it is extremely important for individuals to be financially literate.

By offering these online financial education courses to students in high schools, Community Spirit Bank is able to make a strong impact at an early stage. Thus, strong responsibility with money is instilled in young minds, granting them knowledge on how to be more frugal in early adulthood.

In operation since 2013, the Money$mart project has had a reach of over 2,800 students, with over 21,328 learning modules that total at around 15,500 hours.
