Knowledge Bank Workshops

Our workshops teach students about the relationship between their decision making and their financial well-being. We believe that financial literacy is a practice and our workshops and resources are designed to promote life application in addition to conceptualization. We facilitate workshops and develop resources that enhance student experiences with financial education. Our workshops are designed to teach both middle and high school students the fundamentals of personal finance in an engaging, relatable, and interactive ways. We facilitate 24 workshops yearly and annually educate 360 youth.

Knowledge Bank Ambassadors

Knowledge Bank’s vision of creating a generation of financially knowledgeable, responsible and empowered youth lies within our ability to infuse our message of financial responsibility within the culture of teenaged youth. Our Knowledge Bank Ambassadors are MNPS student who uphold the values of the Knowledge Bank and serve as Hope Dealers in their respective schools and communities. Hope Dealers have both completed and volunteered in Knowledge Bank Workshops and have demonstrated basic understanding in financial literacy concepts (personal budgeting, debit, Banking awareness, etc.)

The Knowledge Bank Purpose

National reports show that young adults have amongst the lowest levels of financial literacy. Students in Tennessee ranked 35th in economic well-being and 33th in education. ( The Kids Count Report 2017). The Knowledge Bank believes by in empowering youth in financial education they can develop the skills needed to better navigate chooses between different careers and educational options. Youth today confront a financial marketplace significantly more complex than the one faced by previous generations. As many approach high school graduation, students find themselves faced with making important life decisions. The Knowledge Banks objective is to equip unserved youth with the knowledge to avoid financial pitfalls and help them become responsible adults who are wise consumers and financially secure.
