Fifth Third Bank recently partnered with the Pinellas County School Board to integrate financial literacy into schools. This is estimated to reach more than 17,000 staff members and 104,000 students.

“As educators, we have the responsibility to prepare every student for life,” said Glenton Gilzean Jr., Pinellas County School Board member. “Financial literacy is the foundation of a secure future. We believe that by incorporating these programs, we are providing critical life skills and well-rounded educational opportunities that will serve Pinellas County graduates throughout their lives and careers.”

Fifth Third Bank employees residing in Pinellas will teach and mentor students through the following programs, which will be initiated under the “Foundations in Personal Finance” partnership:

• Empower U – This financial empowerment program for PCS teachers and staff will include customized seminars, credit and finance consultation and advisory services.

• Young Bankers Club – This 10-week summer enrichment program teaches money basics, including the importance of saving and how education and career choices affect students’ futures. The basic finance and personal responsibility lessons are reinforced by field trips to a local Fifth Third Bank Operations or Banking Center.

• Teach a Student to Save – Middle school students will benefit from this one-day class that emphasizes the importance of saving and ways to achieve financial goals.

• Dave Ramsey Curriculum – Geared toward high school students, this coursework designed by financial expert, Dave Ramsey, will be incorporated into pre-existing classes and will teach students about the importance of their financial futures. Through DVD lectures, a workbook and online content, students learn the value of saving, spending and giving. Educators can incorporate turnkey resources, including lesson plans, tests, activities and other supplemental material. Bank employees will serve as guest teacher-mentors throughout the school year.
