OPERATION HOPE VOLUNTEERS FROM FIRST AMERICAN FINANCIAL AND FEDERAL RESERVE BANK TEACH FINANCIAL LITERACY TO AREA YOUTH
—Banking Basics, Credit Management and Financial Dignity Among Topics Presented to More Than 200 Denver Students—
First American Financial Corporation
(NYSE: FAF), a leading global provider of title insurance and settlement services for residential and commercial real estate transactions, along with Operation HOPE (HOPE), a financial dignity nonprofit, teamed to present a “Youth Academy” on September 11. The academy was a local event at which more than 200 Denver high school students from the far northeast communities and Denver Summit Schools Network learned to manage money and increase their earning potential.
Hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City - Denver Branch, students learned about the basics of banking, checking and savings accounts. The instruction was provided by HOPE Corps members, financial-industry volunteers trained by HOPE to share their knowledge of banking and credit in terms that students can understand and quickly put into practice. In addition to financial education, the students were given messages of empowerment, responsibility and hope.
“It is so important for students to learn the basics of money management so they are prepared to enter society with an understanding of how to manage their basic finances,” said Lionel Savage, President of First American Community Fund, who also serves as chairman of Operation HOPE’s mid-Atlantic board. “By teaching these basic financial skills, it is our hope that these students will learn healthy money-management practices and attitudes that will last throughout their lives.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with First American to bring Banking on Our Future to the local community,” said Mary Kathryn Sagaria, Operation HOPE’s Banking on Our Future Denver program manager. “The students participating in this event attend schools that are part of the Denver Public Schools’ School Turnaround initiative, which focuses on increasing student academic performance. Therefore, this event highlighting financial education and leadership is well aligned to significantly support a turnaround goal.”
