Good Money Management Starts Early
We believe responsible money management should start at an early age.  In fact, each year Forcht Bank employees spend hundreds of hours in local schools teaching Junior Achievement courses teaching money management and the concept of entrepreneurship to students of all ages.  
Reducing bankruptcy rates and decreasing households with no savings start before adulthood - it starts with our youth.  The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has created an online tutorial program that is designed to educate students and young adults on how to manage money, save money, and understand basic banking concepts.
