EverFi Financial Literacy Initiative
United State Bank is pleased sponsor an initiative to bring financial literacy education to high school students across Lewis and Knox counties in Missouri by providing them with access to the EverFi - Financial Literacy learning platform.
This web-based program uses the latest in new media technology - Level 4 simulators, avatars, gaming and adaptive-pathing - to bring complex financial concepts to life for today's digital generation. Through this platform, students will become certified in hundreds of topics in personal finance, allowing them to become more informed, responsible citizens.
United State Bank has partnered with EverFi, Inc. to bring the interactive financial management program to these high school students at no cost to the schools.
"United State Bank is taking a proactive stance on financial literacy and we are happy to help students gain a competitive advantage. Trying to help them from a financial management standpoint is great and will hopefully help them in their growth as young adults," stated Chuck Gnuse, President, United State Bank.
The 10-unit course offers approximately six hours of programming aimed at teaching, assessing and certifying students in a variety of relevant financial topics including credit scores, insurance, credit cards, student loans, mortgages, taxes, stocks, savings, 401k's and other critical concepts that map to national financial literacy standards. The platform uniquely tracks the progress and score of every student and provides students who successfully complete the course with a Certification in Financial Literacy, a valuable mark of distinction on college applications and resumes.
