Youth First Program

The Youth First program will guide your children on a journey through the different stages of their financial life. Whether it is the first savings account, the account where their allowance gets deposited into, or the account that gets direct deposit from their first job.  We will be there every step of the way.

Congratulations to our 2020 Youth First Scholarship Winners!!

A quote from a scholarship recipient:

“Ever since I was very young, I knew our trips to People First were very important missions, and I’ve always enjoyed watching my account balance slowly increase. Since learning the difference between a “need” and a “want,” I try to make careful decisions about spending and strive to save even more than 50% of my earnings so my money can grow.”

Pennsylvania Uniform Transfer to Minors Act (PUTMA) Accounts

PUTMA accounts are available for our young savers to start with a savings account that only the Custodian (Example: Parent, Grandparent, Interested persons) can conduct financial transactions. The funds in the account are used only for the benefit of the Minor without tax liability. PUTMA accounts are opened with the child's social security number and personal information.
Primary Share & Share Draft Accounts are also available with a joint owner (Age restrictions apply). These accounts are great for children who are starting to work and need an account for direct deposit or access to a Visa Debit Card*.
