South Shore Bank partnering with Money Experience to increase Financial Literacy

January 7, 2020

Since its launch in early 2019, Money Experience has teamed up with partners across its home state of Massachusetts to help provide people of all ages the opportunity to increase their financial literacy. Through partnerships with YMCA of Greater Boston, Girls Inc., Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, State Street Corporation, Boston Children's Hospital, South Shore Bank, and numerous other companies, organizations, banks and school districts, Money Experience has touched a diverse audience statewide.

In the most recent National Report Card from the Center For Financial Literacy, Massachusetts was one of only nine states in the US that received a failing grade. And for residents living in a state with no financial literacy requirements, associated budget, or curriculum available for schools that take the initiative to introduce the topic, this comes as no surprise.
