April is Youth Month!

 

April is National Credit Union Youth Month! This month serves to encourage kids to develop healthy saving habits by making savings fun and exciting. At Members First Credit Union, we understand that financial education is crucial at all ages, and we want to help your kids fulfill their big dreams.

Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big. At your credit union.” We want to tell young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.

MFCU has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With a Kids Club or Student Club account, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and watch their savings grow “like magic.” The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow, and the easier it will be to achieve their dreams. Learning this good financial habit at a young age will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.

If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start! Join us this April as credit unions across the country encourage youth to start saving regularly. This celebration is a great time to engage kids at MFCU and within your community to help them learn that saving, no matter how small the amount, can help them achieve their dreams.
