Students learn the value of saving in Arkansas

May 11th, 2015   

Students at Watson Chapel Junior High in Pine Bluff, Arkansas got a visit from HOPE Program Officer Tina Daniels on International Credit Union Day in October. The group of ninth grade students learned about budgeting, saving and making wise financial decisions.  HOPE is committed to teaching children and young adults about the importance of saving and building assets while they are young to help them on the path to a stable financial future. Recent statistics released by the Corporation for Enterprise Development show that students in low- to moderate-income families with a dedicated savings account are three times more likely to attend college and four times more likely to graduate, than students of similar means without such an account.
