FSCC CUs team up on National Runaway Prevention Month
CHICAGO and SAN DIMAS, Calif. (10/30/08)--Financial Service Centers Cooperative Inc. (FSCC) and National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) have teamed up again to raise awareness with credit unions throughout the country to support National Runaway Prevention Month in November. FSCC is encouraging credit unions, including non-shared branching credit unions, to support the campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness of issues facing runaway and at-risk youth, and educate Americans about solutions and roles they can play in preventing youth from running. "Credit unions are leaders in their communities, and they invest time and resources to help people every day," said FSCC President/CEO Sara Canepa Bang. "Raising awareness about youth runaway issues helps not only our communities, but also members and employees." FSCC said credit unions can participate in the campaign, which has a theme of "Let's Talk," by using the campaign's promotional materials. Materials for branches and lobbies and a community action kit are available at FSCC and NRS websites. According to NCR call volume statistics, family dynamics such as divorce, remarriage and problems with siblings, and abuse (substance, physical, sexual, neglect) are the top reasons youth reach out for help. Between 1.6 million and 2.8 million youth run away in a year.
