Young Americans Bank

Young Americans Bank, the world's only bank designed specifically for young people, operates alongside Young Americans Center's nonprofit programs.  Young Americans Bank is a real bank and offers products like checking and savings accounts just like other banks do.  However, the bank's uniqueness is in its focus specifically on young people and helping them develop smart money management habits at an early age.

 

Young Americans Center Nonprofit Programs

Young Americans Center's nonprofit programs depend on more than 5,000 annual volunteers as well as financial and educational support from the community.  That support enables us to impact tens of thousands of kids, teens and young adults each year through engaging, hands-on programs like Young AmeriTowne, International Towne, Summer Camps, Money Matters Classes, Celebration for Young EntrepreneursGet aHead for Business and Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace.


A study of 1,065 teens found that 21% of 18- and 19-year-olds have credit cards.
