More than 100 U.S. Bank representatives will visit schools throughout Oregon as part of National Teach Children to Save Day, a national event sponsored by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation that is designed to teach kids their financial ABCs.

The Teach Children to Save program, now in its seventh year, was created to address the growing financial literacy problem in America. According to the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy in Washington D.C. more than 85 percent of students do not have access to personal finance education in schools. Teen Research Unlimited in Northbrook, Ill. estimates that teenagers spent $172 billion last year, an average of $104 per week, with little or no money management training.

National Teach Children to Save Day presentations are geared to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. U. S. Bank employees will cover topics such as budgeting, the difference between needs and wants, why it's important to save for emergencies and how interest makes money grow. Students will have an opportunity to apply concepts and practices through games and other hands-on activities.
