Promoting the financial health of our youngest members
Providing financial education embodies the movement’s ‘people-helping-people’ philosophy. The 2021 theme for Youth Month is “Be a Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct.” Together, we’re encouraging our youngest members to learn common financial concepts kids should understand:
- Charitable giving
As more Americans seek financial guidance and more credit unions begin to offer services like financial counseling, it’s essential to consider initiatives that also educate young members. If parents have trouble managing money, you can imagine that it’s going to be even more challenging for them to have conversations about money with their kids. SouthPoint Financial Credit Union can serve as an important ally for parents in their mission to teach their kids to be financially responsible. Providing this kind of support and education can help build long-term member loyalty.
If you have been wondering how to empower youth to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start or boost your youth initiatives! Join us this April as credit unions across the country focus on educating youth about financial health. This year’s kid-friendly theme emphasizes the benefits of wise saving and spending using a cast of whimsical, kid-friendly characters. This celebration is a great time to engage kids SouthPoint Financial Credit Union and within your community to help them develop healthy money habits.
Young members who begin a habit of envisioning and recording their goals are more likely to achieve future goals as adults. For “Never go Extinct” we’re encouraging all SouthPoint youth to color the 2021 Be A Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct coloring sheet.
Sheets are available at the drive thru, branches or can be printed at home and dropped off at a branch or emailed to [email protected]. Coloring sheets must be submitted by 11:59 p.m., Friday, April 30, 2021. Drawings will begin to be uploaded to SouthPoint’s Facebook album beginning on April 8. The top drawing in each age group (0-5; 6-10; 11-17) with the most “likes” on the uploaded image at 12 a.m., Friday, May 1 will win a prize. Winners will be notified by May 15, 2021.
