Arvest participated in Teach Children to Save, a national program sponsored by the ABA Community Engagement Foundation, which consists of a series of presentations given by bank employees to area schools. The presentations encourage good saving habits beginning at a young age. 

Nine Arvest Bank associates in the Joplin, Mo., region had the opportunity to give 24 presentations over the course of a month. These Arvest Bank associates joined more than 14,000 bankers nationally who visited classrooms to teach the next generation good money management skills. Arvest Bank’s presentations reached more than 950 students, ranging from Pre-K to eighth grade, in five different communities. Arvest Bank in the Joplin region is pleased with the outcome of this year’s presentations and are already looking forward to presenting again in 2016!

This is an amazing program! I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to be the 'teacher' for these classes in the past. I know that the teachers appreciate our associates taking time to be with the students. The students have always seemed to enjoy the presentations and have even had some really good questions-even the little ones! Great job JPL!!!!
