Area bank provides financial literacy resources to local students, community

FCCB is celebrating their 150th anniversary this year. As part of their ongoing commitment to building better communities, they recently announced the introduction of FCCB Academy, their new online Financial Literacy program.

For years, FCCB has invested time, money, and industry experience in the communities they serve.

Their partnership with Banzai, provider of an award-winning online program and content library, will allow users to practice real-world finance from the safety of their home or classroom using any internet-enabled device. Students and residents of the community have free, 24-7 access.

“At a time when a solid foundation of practical financial knowledge is critical, these resources can make a huge impact,” noted Randall E. Black, CEO and president. “Supporting education is very important to FCCB, and we are proud to bring students and the community access to free online learning tools.”

Through online courses, students try out managing a budget, saving for a goal and dealing with unexpected financial pitfalls.

Teachers are able to easily monitor and grade student progress remotely. To date, FCCB is reaching over 1,000 students across nine counties in Pennsylvania, including Bradford, Chester, Clinton, Lancaster, Lebanon, Potter, Schuylkill, Tioga and Union counties.
