Take an exciting financial adventure with our super hero team, the Centsables!
The Centsables website presents fun games and skills to help children learn the basics of finance. The Centsables also feature a comic series as well as activity pages and information for parents.
The Centsables take center stage in OVB's elementary school programs: Adventures in Credit and Adventures in Saving. Through Adventures in Credit a banker visits classrooms to present a fun, active lesson on using credit wisely. The presentation is 40 minutes, or can be tailored for less, and is designed at the fifth grade level. For the lesson, children learn about using credit wisely as they help The Centsables purchase a SuperMega Bike to fight crime.
With Adventures in Saving, an OVB banker visits classrooms to present a lesson on the importance of saving. The presentation is 40 minutes, or can be tailored for less, and is designed at the fourth grade level. Topics covered in the presentation include wants vs. needs, creating a savings plan, and making deposits.
