We believe strongly in educating children and young adults about the importance of saving and managing money. Our Young Savers program is designed to teach children how to save money in a fun and engaging way. The program makes use of banking materials that kids can relate to, such as a fun Club Passbook with saving tips, cool plastic coin wrappers, deposit slips, and a chance to win exciting club prizes.

Sandy Spring also has a national award winning In-School Banking program. This grass roots effort has taken financial literacy concepts right into the classroom.

Each week, a Sandy Spring Bank representative visits participating elementary schools and works with children who are trained to be "bank tellers" for the school. They organize a school branch where the tellers are authorized to perform deposit transactions. After all the deposits have been collected, the tellers learn how to settle accounts at the school's bank. Learn more.
