Financial Scholars Program
Our mission at South Shore Bank is to be the guide to financial wellness for the communities we serve. Through a partnership with education technology company EverFi, South Shore Bank empowers students in Massachusetts with the knowledge and skills they need to take control of their financial future.
South Shore Bank Financial Scholars Program for High Schools
The South Shore Bank Financial Scholars Program provides interactive digital financial education to elementary/middle/high schools throughout our footprint. More than 300 students have completed or are currently enrolled in the curriculum. In 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) highlighted EverFi’s schools-based financial education programs in a new report on Advancing K-12 Financial Education: A Guide for Policymakers.

Edmond and Noreen had a great conversation with the class about credit scores, how to get a credit card, and how to set themselves up for success even before graduation!|
