everfi2 300In 2011, First Kentucky Bank made the commitment to underwrite the award-winning EverFi Financial Literacy program at Muhlenberg County High School and schools in other communities directly served by the financial institution. The EverFi program represents a four-year financial commitment of over $48,000 by First Kentucky Bank. In addition, First Kentucky Bank supports financial literacy through such renowned programs as Junior Achievement, Teach Children to Save Day, and Teach Kids About Credit Day, and more.
 
EverFi – Financial Literacy is a new-media learning platform that uses the latest technology (video, animations, 3-D gaming, avatars and social networking) to bring complex financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation. The course targets students in grades 9-12 and covers essential topics such as credit score, insurance, credit cards, taxes, investing, savings, 401k, and mortgages. The platform meets the standards of the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Finance and Literacy National Standards.
 
Students are able to apply their learning in safe virtual environments to weigh the consequences of their choices and practice good decision-making. Upon completing the curriculum, students earn certification in financial capability – a valuable mark of distinction on resumes and college applications. They also earn badges along the way for mastering key skills. Also, surveys and assessments measure student knowledge gains and changes in students’ attitudes and behaviors. Executive summaries provide analysis and insights around key trends.
