Bank in School
Since 2005, U.S. Bank’s partnership with the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) Center for Economic Education has delivered a real-world money management and banking experience to K--5 classrooms with the Bank in School program. This unique hands-on program provides the opportunity for students to make weekly deposits, learn job skills as a “student teller” and attain personal finance skills as they create savings goals and track their progress by managing a checkbook register.
The UNO Center conducts teacher workshops featuring developmentally appropriate financial education lessons. Participating elementary schools host interviews for the student teller jobs and designate time each week for U.S._Bank volunteers to facilitate the Bank in School experience.
