The youth  and students attending the event were informed about the need and relevance of financial literacy. In addition, the level of financial literacy was discussed, as well as the increased criminality and risk associated with the rise of electronic banking.

The program has also encouraged the use of the banking system for financial transactions such as cash transfers, transactions, and remittances. The bank believes that this will enhance the banking system and increase financial literacy among youth and students. 

Citizens Bank provides services through 190 branches, 153 ATMs, and 98 branchless banking locations.
