Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers issued a proclamation naming April 2022 National Credit Union Youth Month. The proclamation recognizes the importance of financial education from an early age and notes credit unions are dedicated to improving economic well-being for their members and communities.
"We’re thrilled that Governor Evers has showcased the critical role credit unions play in preparing future generations to be financially healthy," stated Brett Thompson, president/CEO of the Wisconsin Credit Union League. "This proclamation recognizes how credit unions are structured and mission driven to put people before profit in their service to members and comes on the heels of three credit unions being recently selected as recipients of the Governor's Financial Literacy Award."
April is National Credit Union Youth Month, the time each year credit unions help teach and encourage kids to develop strong financial habits. This year’s theme is “Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union.”
