Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream big at your credit union.” It uses the image of a magical rainbow with a wish-fulfilling gold star at the end. We want to tell young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.
SouthPoint has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With a youth savings account, like our EzMoney Savings, that earns compound interest, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and watch their savings grow “like magic.” The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow, and the easier it will be to achieve their dreams. Learning this good financial habit at a young age will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.
If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start! Join us this April as credit unions across the country encourage youth to start saving regularly. This celebration is a great time to engage kids at SouthPoint and within your community to help them learn that saving, no matter how small the amount, can help them achieve their dreams.
Young members who begin a habit of envisioning and recording their goals are more likely to achieve future goals as adults. For “Save Small. Dream Big” we’re encouraging all SouthPoint youth to color the 2022 Save Small. Dream Big 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Coloring sheets must be submitted by 11:59 p.m., Friday, April 29, 2022. 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., Sunday, May 1 will win a prize. Winners will be notified by May 16, 2022.
