"Youth Week is all about encouraging youth to save their money-so what better way than telling them they are superheroes for doing so? The theme can work in so many different ways. It not only encourages them to be Super Savers, but it can be a great opportunity for credit unions to demonstrate how they are superheroes in their own communities," notes Balcaitis.
In keeping with the Super Saver theme, the 2012 Youth Week poster employs comic book-inspired design and bright primary colors. The poster and related artwork will be available online at cuna.org/youthweekin January 2012. For updates on Youth Week, credit union staff may sign up for a free e-newsletter.
