KICKSTART TO CAREER
Initiated in March, 2018
This program establishes Children's Savings Accounts for all students when they enter Kindergarten. The first group will be the Class of 2031. The Fremont Area Community Foundation will give each student $50 in an account at Choice One Bank. Students will have the opportunity to earn and add more to this account throughout their K-12 school career.
The goal is so when students get ready to graduate from high school, they have some money to put toward expenses for college and/or their career. Programs like these have proven that students who have this account along with the associated lessons about saving and planning are far more likely to enter and finish college and/or be successful in their career.
