Youth Banking Resource Center
Youth Banking Network
The FDIC Youth Banking Network provides opportunities for banks, working to connect financial education to savings accounts for school-aged children, to learn from one another and FDIC staff. The FDIC hopes to learn how we can further support these efforts, such as through the development of complementary educational tools, resources, and enhancements to the FDIC’s Money Smart for Young People curricula.
A list of banks that are Network members is available here or via download. Reference to any specific organization does not constitute an endorsement, a recommendation, or a favoring by the FDIC or the United States government.

The FDIC welcomes FDIC-insured institutions to participate in the FDIC Youth Banking Network. Joining the Network does not require reporting or any specific time commitment. Institutions must meet the following three criteria to participate:
- Be an FDIC-insured institution that is working, or planning to work, with a school, school district, or nonprofit organization that serves youth under age 18 to carry out a program that allows the young people to open a savings account at the FDIC-insured institution.
- Provide the youth financial education, either directly or in collaboration with a partner school, school district, or nonprofit organization.
- Be in operation for three or more years.
To join, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and briefly describe how your financial institution meets these criteria. Upon review, your financial institution will be included in the Network and added to the list of members during the semi-annual member listing update (next scheduled for March 2018).
Schools, School Districts, and Non Profit Organizations
Do you want to collaborate with a financial institution to encourage financial education and youth savings accounts? Are you already collaborating with a bank? We invite you to sign up for updates designed to help support your activities that enhance youth financial education programming and access to a savings account. These updates may include occasional newsletters and webinars. We also will notify you of scheduled outreach events in your community that relate to youth financial education or youth savings. Upon request, we may also conduct train-the-trainer sessions for educators who plan to use the FDIC’s Money Smart curricula.
To sign up, please email email@example.com and include your organization’s name, a point of contact name, phone number, city, state, and a brief description of your interest in youth financial education and youth savings.
