Smart Kid! Save Smart

Zelena and her friends are teaching Smart Kids how to Save Smart!

Do you remember the first time your parents asked you to save money? When did you first have to buy your own ticket at the movie theater? Do you have a piggy bank? Through Zelena’s story, Action Ministries starts these financial conversations with Elementary aged students. Zelena tells children her story of learning how to plan for her own savings and working for her own dreams.

Zelena’s Theme Week is a 5-day classroom guide including worksheets and activities that teach basic financial concepts such as earning, budgets, and savings tailored to an elementary-aged audience.

Help us ensure that children across North Georgia have access to financial skills. Volunteer to help teach and distribute Zelena’s Smart Kid! Save Smart curriculum! Your support will help establish a savings mindset for hundreds of young learners.
