What: SIU Credit Union helps educate youth membership prepare for their futures through financial education
When: Throughout April
Where: All Branches
Who Can Enter: All members of the public Promoting the financial health of our youngest members
Providing financial education embodies the movement’s ‘people-helping-people’ philosophy. The theme for this year’s Youth Month is “Money Magic. Share, Spend and Save at Your Credit Union”.
Together, we’re encouraging our youngest members to learn common financial concepts kids should understand:
• Charitable giving
As more Americans seek financial guidance and more credit unions begin to offer services like financial counseling, it’s essential to consider initiatives that also educate young members. If parents have trouble managing money, you can imagine that it’s going to be even more challenging for them to have conversations about money with their kids. SIU Credit Union can serve as an important ally for parents in their mission to teach their kids to be financially responsible. Providing this kind of support and education can help build long-term member loyalty.
If you have been wondering how to empower youth to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start or boost your youth initiatives! Join us this April as credit unions across the country focus on educating youth about financial health. This year’s kid-friendly theme emphasizes the benefits of wise saving and spending using a cast of whimsical, kid-friendly characters. This celebration is a great time to engage kids at SIU Credit Union and within your community to help them develop healthy money habits.
As a reward for making a deposit in April, children under 18 will get a prize while supplies last. Plus, if they fill out the National Youth Saving Challenge Entry Form, they’ll be eligible to win up to $100. See a branch for details. Get involved by using the Twitter hashtag #CUYouthMonth to let everyone know how SIU Credit Union is making a difference in young members’ lives.
