Sife Youth Banking Project at PCCS

Beginning in 2007 and continuing still today, Bank of Bolivar has proudly partnered with the SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) team from Southwest Baptist University to facilitate a youth banking project at Polk County Christian School in Bolivar. BOB brought its mascot, Howdy, along with several new accounts personnel to the school to open youth savings accounts for the children who chose to participate.  SIFE students taught a basic financial curriculum to the students and collected weekly deposits to go into their accounts. At the end of each school year, BOB awarded prizes to those students who had made regular deposits into their accounts. At this time, SIFE plans to continue this project for several more years.
