East Cambridge Savings Bank recently provided financial literacy sessions for high school students in two of its banking center communities. In Malden, Bank employees Christopher Rodrigues and Mike Vannaraj led four sessions for high school students covering banking, budgeting, identity theft, and understanding credit – four topics critical to a firm understanding of personal finance and money management. In Medford, the Bank attended the annual Credit for Life fair, a half day event where Medford High School seniors learned about various topics relating to banking, budgeting, and credit. Bank employees KathyAnn Dottin and Madhu Satyal facilitated a table at the fair with information on these and other banking related products and services.
Earlier in the spring, employees also shared their knowledge of finance and banking with preschoolers and senior citizens.
In Everett, KathyAnn Dottin and Jessica Chaves taught second and fourth grade students from the Keverian School the importance of budgeting, the benefits of saving money, and the role banks play in the community.
The Malden Banking Center staff had the pleasure of giving a tour of the bank to 25 students of the My Little Best Friends Early Learning Center. The students were read “Carnival Thrills and Dollar Bills” before touring the teller and vault area and they were shown how an ATM works.
In Belmont, Bryant Nestico conducted a fraud awareness and prevention class at the Belmont Senior Center to review common scams impacting seniors including phishing scams, COVID card scams, IRS scams, and Medicare fraud. The program was interactive with many attendees sharing their own personal experiences.
