CBA Announces Strategic Partnership with EverFi
SACRAMENTO, CA — The California Bankers Association (CBA), one of the largest state banking trade associations, and EverFi, the nation’s leading financial literacy software company, have announced the launch of a new strategic partnership.
EverFi provides an opportunity for California banks to enhance their existing financial education initiatives and deliver the latest technology to local high schools through a private-labeled program that teaches, assesses and certifies high school students in more than 600 topics in personal finance. The program is currently used by more than 3,000 high schools in all 50 states and meets all national and state requirements for financial literacy.
“Educating our future banking customers is a top priority for the banking industry,” said Rodney Brown, president and CEO of the CBA. “Providing students with banking knowledge before they utilize these products and services will allow them to make informed, smart choices and pave the way for their future financial security. We are very pleased to offer this opportunity to our members.”
“EverFi is thrilled to partner with the CBA to promote financial literacy in California through our cutting-edge learning platforms,” said Mike Fee, executive vice president of EverFi. “This program provides a valuable channel connecting banks to their local communities and engages students using tools that teens love – digital learning and gaming.”
EverFi’s web-based financial literacy platform uses the latest in new media technologies including adaptive-pathing, 3-D gaming, social networking, online animations, and video and messaging tools to present complex learning modules to students. After successfully completing each module, students are certified in more than 600 core financial topics, including: banking, taxes, mortgages, financing higher education, stocks, 401(k) plans, budgeting and saving, credit scores, insurance and credit cards.
