Using Science to Help You Save for Your Future 

The theme for this year's National Credit Union Youth Month ™ event is the Science of Savings. The celebration inspires young people to save their money at your credit union so they can enjoy the future they dream about.

Here's how you can participate. 

  1. Sign up for the Member Celebrations e-newsletter. Here we'll share exclusive deals, celebration tips, stories about what other CUs are doing, and fun contests. 
  2. Contact a mentor. These friendly credit union folks have years of experience hosting blockbuster youth events and have generously made themselves available to answer your questions. They've also shared some of their best advice. 
  3. Participate in the National Youth Savings Challenge. It's a ready-to-go youth event. It can be as simple as hanging up decorations and giving a small prize for every youth deposit. Plus, CUNA uses the participation numbers in our lobbying efforts to demonstrate to legislators the movement's commitment to the credit union difference. 
  4. Promote your event. Use our free promotional materials or purchase the 2018 Youth Month Design Bundle to create customizable materials that match your brand. Send out a press release, contact your members, and share the art from the social media toolkit across your digital channels. 
  5. Give prizes. Almost every successful youth event is a testament to the power of a simple prize to entice young savers. Create a prize wheel, enter savers into a drawing, or simply pick a giveaway everyone gets. 
  6. Engage your staff. Get staff input on your giveaways, get them excited about meeting your goal for the savings challenge, let them take the lead in planning a community event that involves youth, and outfit them in fun CU apparel.
