At Charles River Bank, we are committed to helping children in our community learn the basics of savings and financial responsibility.
For Elementary School Students at Participating Schools
Each week a member of the Charles River Bank team will visit your child’s school and allow him or her to make a deposit into their very own savings account. Throughout the school year, students will learn banking basics – filling out a deposit slip, maintaining a transaction registry – while watching their savings grow.
To reward and encourage students we offer free gifts, newsletters and contests throughout the year. Plus, we will deposit $5 into the account to get them started! (One $5 opening deposit per child.)
For High School Students
Charles River Bank operates a full-service branch in the main lobby of the Medway High School which is run by students. Student Tellers get hands on experience operating a bank branch, providing customer service, processing bank transactions, handling new accounts and addressing service inquiries. They also gain an understanding of banking regulations, products and services.
