Every April we celebrate Youth Month with CUNA, the Credit Union National Association. This year, Youth Month focuses on our youth fulfilling their big dreams by encouraging them to use a savings account to practice good financial habits with the theme of “Save Small. Dream Big.”
Here at the Credit Union, we’re celebrating Youth Month with a coloring contest. Therefore, all of our members 12 years of age and under are encouraged to participate! Coloring sheets are available at the Credit Union for pickup or on our website for download and should be returned by the end of April. One winner receives a four pack of Regal movie tickets.
In regards to our website, we have a newly redesigned Kid’s Club webpage for our members! For example, the webpage offers information about our deposit logs, automatic transfers, and educational downloads. Those downloads include worksheets to learn about money and how to save, as well as word searches, and more. In addition, our Kid’s Club page also offers information about our Good Grades program. This program gives our younger members a way to earn money for their good grades at the end of the year. All they have to do is show us their end of the year report card!
Our younger members are our future which is why we love celebrating Youth Month with CUNA. Above all, we encourage our members to open accounts for their children or grandchildren this month to celebrate Youth Month and help them save!
