Bank On Seattle-King County (BOSKC), a youth-led Bank On campaign, with oversight from the Community Network Council, and the Financial Empowerment Network, supports efforts to improve financial education, critical thinking, leadership, and collaboration skills of 6th – 8th graders. The program highlights a financial continuum that begins with the importance of possessing a bank account and continues to additional topics, like career planning. Additional goals of BOSKC include:

  • Enhancing existing financial education efforts with Bank On integration
  • Strengthening curriculum content in mathematics and social studies classes
  • Building strong partnerships between parents, banks, schools, nonprofit organizations, and local government as a foundation of a successful youth-led Bank On coalition
  • Involving youth in Bank On Seattle-King County program implementation and administration
