A Banker in Every Classroom

The MBA A Banker in Every Classroom program brings together Mississippi bankers and teachers at the local level to promote financial literacy for K-12 students. Bankers can present personal finance lessons to students in both public and private school classrooms throughout Mississippi. This successful state-wide program has reached over 100,000 Mississippi K-12 students and gives Mississippi bankers the opportunity to do what they do best: build relationships in their communities.

'A Banker in Every Classroom' Week
Each year the Mississippi Bankers Association promotes the first week of November as 'A Banker in Every Classroom' Week. And Governor Reeves has officially proclaimed this Banker in Every Classroom Week and encourages "teachers, bankers and all citizens to join in this effort to support the financial education of Mississippi students during this special week and to continue these efforts into the future for the benefit of our state's young citizens and all Mississippians."

HOW IT WORKS

PRESENTATIONS
Bankers register with the MBA to volunteer to visit a classroom in their area. At the same time, teachers throughout the state register, making requests for local bankers to appear virtually in their classrooms. The MBA then matches bankers and teachers and can help arrange date(s) for presentation(s). Bankers can decide whether to visit more than one school and make more than one presentation.

See below for instructions on how to send your videos into the MBA. 

PRESENTATION MATERIALS
Age-appropriate materials on personal finance topics are available through the MBA, but are not required. Bankers and teachers can decide which materials they prefer to use. Visit our Grade Level Curriculum page on this web site to download materials you may wish to use.
