At BB&T, providing financial guidance and education is at the heart of what we do. From helping our communities understand the basics to navigating complex topics, we strive to be the one-stop-shop for all financial knowledge.
Several programs support teaching students and adults in a wide variety of ways. The “Bank On Your Success” curriculum is the latest BB&T branded DVD series designed to help participants learn about the basics of banking, and apply various tools such as budgeting and planning to their own lives. Each DVD is supported by a participant workbook in English and Spanish.
Classes are facilitated by a banking team, all of whom work in that particular community. The video ensures a consistent curriculum, and the banking experience of the BB&T team enriches each presentation. BB&T expects to expand the program by offering additional topics to a broader group within the community.
During the past year, BB&T bankers have provided more than 110 “Bank On Your Success” sessions with mostly client churches and community organizations. The program has been embraced by faith leaders as a way to educate and assist their parishioners. The faith community helped shape the overall program as BB&T consulted with churches prior to developing the “Bank On Your Success” program.
In many cases, the banking teams who facilitiate these educational programs speak the language, reflect the culture and understand the nuances of the culture and community being supported. We enjoy educating our communities so they can make the best choices for their financial future.
