MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (4/7/14)--Riding the wave of National Financial Literacy Month, the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island credit union leagues have spearheaded a new campaign that knots together the financial literacy work credit unions have undertaken throughout their respective states.
Called "Enhancing and Fostering Financial Education and Capability Together," or the CU Effect, the leagues are developing a website for the program, which will serve as a resource for credit unions developing financial education curriculum.
The site also will offer an ability to track Reality Fairs and CU 4 Reality Financial Education Fairs, and provide a forum for credit unions to post what services they're delivering to their memberships, schools and communities.
Additional curriculum will be provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s MoneySmarts, the National Endowment for Financial Education, and the National Credit Union Foundation's REAL Solutions and Biz Kid$ programs.
Michael Rubin, author of "Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck" and "The Savings Solution," is the scheduled speaker for CU Effect's fall meeting.
