Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money

Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money is a program dedicated to giving our communities the resources, tools and tips to make informed financial decisions and gain financial confidence.

This year, more than 400 colleagues will teach financial literacy in our communities.

Our Commitment

In April of this year, we announced our $1.5 million commitment to organizations across our footprint to support programming helping individuals, families, and small businesses improve their financial acumen. Our contributions, combined with 400 colleagues trained to teach financial literacy, will reach an estimated 338,000 people across our footprint and provide them with the resources and tools to help manage their money.

Junior Achievement

Citizens Bank has partnered with Junior Achievement (JA), the nation's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices.

Through this partnership, Citizens is mobilizing our colleagues as volunteers and helping our communities thrive. This partnership supports the JA Teens & Personal Finance Survey, the JA Career Success program, and the JA Job Shadow program.
