Unleash the Power of Savings – Youth Month

Mar 2023 | Credit Union News, Financial Education, Youth

April is National Credit Union Youth Month! This month is all about encouraging kids to develop healthy savings habits by making savings fun and exciting.

This month’s theme is “Unleash the power of savings at your credit union.” We want our young members to recognize the power of savings, and encourage them to begin making smart financial decisions at any age.

Start teaching your child the habit of savings through these simple steps:

  • Print images of what your child is saving for.
  • Display the images where they will see it often.
  • Show them and talk openly about how you save.
  • Help them open a savings account at AAGCU. 

We also have youth-specific financial education tools, including fun, interactive games where they can learn about money in an exciting way.
