MADISON, Wis. (1/25/13)--The Credit Union National Association is offering art, articles, celebration materials and promotional products for National Credit Union Youth Week.
The theme of this year's National Credit Union Youth Week, April 21-27, is "Savings Sleuth--Solve the Mystery." Credit unions will be challenged to help the nation's youth solve the mystery of how to save money for meaningful purchases.
The goal of Youth Week is to start children on the path to lifelong credit union membership by educating them about their money, setting up savings accounts and rewarding them with topical prizes--while putting in the effort that increases loyalty from their parents
The National Youth Saving Challenge, sponsored by CUNA, will be held throughout the month of April. The challenge jumpstarts smart savings habits in youth and rewards 10 participants for their hard work with cash prizes.
Campaign materials offered by CUNA include financial education content, items to reward young members and apparel for credit union staff.
