On May 29, 2018, a Start2Save roadshow was held to encourage the students open their own bank accounts. The students excitedly received their welcome kit containing their own S2S Passbook, ATM card, notepad, stickers, and a birthday coupon. The students were also given mini calculators to help them manage their own allowance.
Aside from opening their accounts, the students also participated in UCPB’s Financial Education sessions where they learned the basics of budgeting, saving, and spending to improve their ability to manage their allowance even at a young age.
This is the fourth S2S school roadshow organized by UCPB for 2018 in support of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and Bank Marketing Association of the Philippines’ Banking on Your Future (BOYF) Program. BOYF enjoins banks to promote financial education and increase the savings in the country by encouraging millions of Filipino youth from 0-19 years old to open bank accounts.
