State Bank of The Lakes recently partnered with the Round Lake Area School District #116 and presented a financial literacy program titled "Money Smart" to their Horizon's 21st Century Learning Center. The "Money Smart" Program, created by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), is a comprehensive financial education curriculum designed to help individuals outside the mainstream enhance their financial skills and create positive banking relationships.

The program was facilitated by State Bank of The Lakes employees and ran for five weeks. It was offered in both English and Spanish to the parents of the 21st Century Learning Center students. Approximately 150 parents were involved in the financial literacy program. State Bank of The Lakes recognizes the importance of financial education, particularly for those with little or no banking experience. Financial education fosters financial stability for individuals, families and entire communities. The "Money Smart" curriculum enables individuals to build financial knowledge, develop financial confidence and use banking services effectively.
