House to back fin lit month CU Youth Savings Week
WASHINGTON (4/20/10)—The House later today is expected to adopt a resolution supporting the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) National Credit Union Youth Week and the goals and ideals of Financial Literacy Month. The theme for this year's Youth Week, which ends on April 25, is "Get in the Savings Game." A total of 395 credit unions have registered for the National Saving Challenge, which takes place throughout April. CUNA also sponsors a National Youth Savings Challenge during the same month. Credit unions are celebrating Youth Week by taking part in community-oriented activities, including donating funds to the Children’s Miracle Network and local food pantries. Financial Literacy Month, which began on April 1, seeks to raise public awareness about financial education. CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica said that CUNA “is proud to carry on the legacy of its member credit unions through its support of Financial Literacy Month," adding that CUNA is looking forward to helping current and future credit union members “become ever more financially literate."
