Cambridge Savings Bank recently provided free financial education lessons to 50 Lexington High School students through the Bank’s CSBsmart program, a release states. Participants learned about several important topics, including budgeting and saving, checking account management, building credit, and fraud awareness.
“Financial education is instrumental in helping students become financially responsible as they prepare for college or the workforce, so programs like CSBsmart make an important contribution by reinforcing existing business and finance curriculums,” said Edward Unger, a Lexington High School Business teacher.
“Cambridge Savings Bank is pleased to share essential financial knowledge with Lexington High School students,” said Evan Diamond, CSB’s Vice President and Financial Education Program Manager. “Our lessons teach many concepts including how to make smart credit choices and how to protect oneself from fraud.”
Since 2010, Cambridge Savings Bank has conducted more than 600 CSBsmart sessions for more than 9,000 students, adults, and seniors in Eastern Massachusetts.
