April is National Credit Union Youth Month, the time each year when credit unions teach and encourage kids to develop strong financial habits. This year’s theme is Unleash the Power of Saving at Your Credit Union™.
“Youth Month presents an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of the credit union movement with younger members. It plants the seeds of financial well-being at an early age,” said Megan Crowson, manager of consumer engagement for CUNA.
Last year, 713 new youth accounts were opened, and 23,490 deposits made during Youth Month. Participating credit unions encouraged kids to share, spend and save wisely through their credit union with giveaways, contests, virtual financial education and more.
Again this year, there are many ways for credit unions and their members to get involved in this industry-wide celebration, including participating in the National Youth Saving Challenge™.
