Wells Fargo introduces online financial literacy programme

US bank Wells Fargo has teamed up with Operation Hope, a non-profit organisation founded to support inner city economic regeneration, and e-learning company SmartForce to give school children and adults nationwide access to online financial literacy skills not taught in typical school curriculums.

"Banking on Our Future" can be accessed at the Web sites of Wells Fargo, Operation Hope and SmartForce and takes between 30 and 90 minutes to complete. It is tailored to different grade levels - elementary, middle school, high school and adults.

The educational scheme will involve volunteers helping students in classrooms across America improve their literacy; Wells Fargo Internet and e-buses providing hands-on education; and a fleet of mobile education centres equipped with various computer terminals and wireless connections.
