Youth Get Wild About Saving in April

Carbondale, IL – April 1, 2015 This April, youth can take a walk on the wild side at SIU Credit Union. Whether they’ve been to the jungle or not, the call of the wild is enticing to youth of all ages. This year, they can check out the credit union’s financial menagerie without a trip to the banking zoo.


During the month of April, youth will have the opportunity to go on safari at the credit union as SIU Credit Union celebrates National Credit Union Youth Month. This year’s theme, “Wild About Saving,” encourages youth to use resources available at the credit union to help them cut their way through the jungle of financial responsibility. Before long, they’ll be leading their own savings safari.

So stop by SIU Credit Union in Carbondale on Saturday, April 11 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and get in on the action at our Youth Month events:


Just for Kids

Kids can enjoy free activities such as face painting, a safari photo booth, coloring pages, giveaways, and more! Refreshments will be served. Located at 395 N. Giant City Road, Carbondale IL.



Mad City Money

Older kids can get in on the action by participating in Mad City Money: a fun, free workshop where teens & tweens can learn how to identify wants vs. needs and budgeting for their future. Located at 400 N. Giant City Road. Pizza & refreshments will be served. RSVP required for Mad City Money. Call (618) 457-3595 ext 2010 or email


Bring your zoologists into SIU Credit Union, and get them wild about saving!
