MADISON, Wis. (4/15/15)--The National Credit Union Foundation has released 10 short "Did You Know?" video clips to help credit unions learn about the many resources the Biz Kid$ website has to offer.
The 10 YouTube video clips include insight into Biz Kid$ family activities, community toolkits and the Biz Kid$ blog.
"The Biz Kid$ website is a great free resource for parents, teachers and kids looking to enhance their financial literacy education and programs," said Danielle Brown, the foundation's director of development and donor relations. "We encourage credit unions to check out all the tools that Biz Kid$ provides to help improve and engage youth in financial education."
Biz Kid$ is a financial literacy initiative launched nationally in January 2008 that teaches kids about money and business. It includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities and a website targeting children 9-16 years old.
The foundation is responsible for the fundraising and outreach of the program, and a coalition of more than 300 credit unions and affiliates nationwide have helped fund Biz Kid$.
