The National Credit Union Foundation is hosting a Twitter chat at 3 p.m. (CT) Wednesday in conjunction with National Credit Union Youth Month.
“The National Financial Educators Council recently tested teens on areas covered within national financial literacy standards,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation director of communications. “The results were shocking; while only 4.7% of participants got an A on the test, 62.4% got a D or an F. Thankfully, credit unions are making strides in this area, which is why the Foundation is pleased to facilitate this discussion.”
During the Twitter chat, credit unions and their staff are encouraged to share best practices and examples of their efforts to reach youth such as financial literacy programs, community outreach, products and services, in-school branches and more. San Diego County CU, San Diego, will be the special guest.
