Credit Unions Make Kids ‘Stronger’!
This Friday, April 1st is the start of National Credit Union Youth Month - an entire month dedicated to financial education for young people. Credit unions around the nation celebrate in a number of different ways, from activities and presentations, to community seminars and giveaways. And here at Meriwest Credit Union, we’re no different!
Our month-long youth celebration is focused on the theme of Credit Union Strong. Young people face a bewildering financial landscape in their immediate future—one where technology has made spending as easy as breathing and the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. That’s why we believe it’s more important than ever to ensure our youth possess strong money management skills.
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our core values include member education and social responsibility. We care about the community where we live and work, and the people in it. We look forward to watching the next generation grow and make it even better.
By instilling the habit of saving at a young age, offering positive encouragement, and providing financial education, we can prepare our community’s youngest members for brighter futures by helping them grow into financially capable adults. Credit union strong means having the money skills to embrace an awesome future, and leaving your community better than you found. That’s why we take our mission of helping youth so seriously.
Of course, we realize the biggest influence on anyone’s life is his or her parents. So if you want to start your kids on a path to financial strength, participating in Meriwest Credit Union’s Youth Month is a good start!
Stop by any one of our financial center locations anytime during the month of April – a new youth membership or any existing youth membership that establishes a FLOW account will receive a fun give-away!
We will also be hosting Youth Day celebrations to show your youth and teens how to get Credit
Union Strong™ and pump up their savings!
