Guardian has partnered with Greenlight, the all-in-one money management tool designed to support families in raising financially smart kids, all at no cost to Guardian members. Greenlight offers a tailored digital banking solution for youth, featuring debit card access, customizable spending controls, and essential financial tools such as chores and allowance management, financial literacy resources, and guidance on healthy financial habits, all under parental supervision.

Greenlight Debit Card and App dashboard on phone view.

Greenlight is the debit card for kids and teens, managed by parents.

Greenlight's app and debit card equips parents with a convenient and accessible way to teach their children financial responsibility through hands-on applications. Within the app, parents can assign and customize chores, automate allowance payments, pre-set spending limits at chosen stores, and transfer money to their children instantly while receiving real-time notifications of all activity on their child's account. Children can also gain more financial confidence through Greenlight Level Up, an interactive game experience offering bite-sized lessons and educational challenges for all things money management.
