Credit Union Youth Month

Apr 2024 | Credit Union News, Youth

April is National Credit Union Youth Month!

Youth month is all about encouraging children to develop good money habits. At Alaska Air Group Credit Union, we want our young members to recognize the value of savings, and encourage them to begin making smart financial decisions at any age.

 

Ways to participate:

Open an AAGCU Youth Account for your child.

Give your child’s financial future a head start and begin teaching them the value of money and saving. Earn 6.14% Annual Percentage Yield on the first $500 on a Take Off Kids Savings Account or Altitude Teen Club Savings Account!

Banzai Financial Education.

Start teaching your child the value of money with help from our free youth financial education courses. Our financial education partner, Banzai, offers fun, interactive, and educational games that involve real-world scenarios to teach kids about savings, income, credit, budgeting, and more!

Create a Savings Collage.

Help your child learn about savings by helping them make a savings collage! Help them print photos of their savings goal and glue them together in a collage. Hang it somewhere your child will see it often to remind them what they are saving their money for.
