Neighbors Financial Literacy Center at Denham Springs High School opens Wednesday, January 31, 2018. This location will serve as an opportunity for Neighbors to help enrich the financial education of DSHS students.
The facility will be equipped with an iPad, an iPhone, two computers and a touchscreen monitor. This equipment will allow students to access Neighbors Financial Literacy content and online banking.
Neighbors will implement a hands-on approach to incentivize DSHS students to learn and apply financial concepts.
This facility is part of the Neighbors Mascot Program. The Mascot Program provides specialized checking accounts to participating schools in the Greater Baton Rouge area and gives money back to the school for each debit card swipe. In addition to the financial contributions, Neighbors provides Financial Literacy courses at each school.
You can open a mascot checking account here.
“We have enjoyed a great relationship with Neighbors Federal Credit Union for some time through their promotion of their Mascot Debit Card which features our Yellow Jacket logo.” DSHS Principal Kelly Jones said. “We are extremely excited to expand that relationship with the opening of the Financial Literacy Center on our campus.”
“The facility will provide a resource to educate our students on financial responsibility which is a necessity as these students move on to their life after high school.”
Neighbors Vice President of Sales and Service Brandi Cummins will oversee the facility in conjunction with a DSHS faculty member.
“We are thrilled to open up our Financial Literacy Center at Denham Springs High School,”
Neighbors President and CEO Steve Webb said. “This facility will help establish a foundation of
financial knowledge in these students as they prepare to build the world of tomorrow.”
Financial literacy courses are also available to members of the Greater Baton Rouge area. You can sign up for our next course here.
