EverFi - Financial Literacy™

Credit card bills, debt, saving and financing higher education may not be top of mind for most students, but the financial decisions they make today will have a long-term impact on their lives. Poor financial awareness jeopardizes teens’ ability to succeed in today's complex and competitive environments.

The South Dakota Bankers Association and member banks are helping prepare a generation to make sound financial decisions. Endorsed by the SDBA, 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.

38 South Dakota banks sponsored EverFi in 84 high schools across the state during the 2015-2016 school year. A total of 4,024 high school students took part in the program, completing a total of 27,012 learning modules.
