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:

  • Saving
  • Spending
  • Charitable giving
  • Investing
  • Budgeting

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. Members 1st 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 Members 1st and within your community to help them develop healthy money habits.

Get involved by using the Twitter hashtag #CUYouthMonth to let everyone know how your credit union is making a difference in young members’ lives.
