Each year, National Credit Union Youth Month in April serves to encourage kids to develop healthy saving habits and supports financial well-being by making savings fun and exciting. This campaign is an opportunity for your credit union to engage with young members, educate them about the benefits of credit unions, and show them that your credit union is there to help them throughout their financial journey.
As a reminder, to spread awareness about credit unions AND promote good financial decisions, DakCU has a series of ten social media memes prepared that you can request for your credit union’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. Email Shawn Brummer to receive the images or check DakCU’s Facebook page often to “like and share.” Don't forget to spread awareness by sharing your Youth Month festivities using the hashtag #CUYouthMonth.
(Shown above and below are a few examples of the available graphics.)
Then, make your Youth Month celebrations more exciting and memorable with specially priced giveaways from the Igloo Mall featuring Pee Wee and Friends®. This is a great time for Pee Wee and Friends® subscribers to stock up on supplies. Shown below are some of the specially priced items just for Youth Month!
If you are interested in having the Pee Wee and Friends® young savers program at your credit union, be sure to contact Debbie Kruckenberg.
Pee Wee and Friends® helps credit union kids learn about saving money and smart spending. This program is filled with financial education opportunities, as well as other fun activities for kids in kindergarten - sixth grade. Make a difference with your young members and show them the smart ways to save with the Pee Wee and Friends® program.
Pee Wee and Friends® will introduce young members at your credit union to saving, spending, and other financial tips. This program will help your young members learn about the lifelong benefits of becoming a credit union member. The program can also help create an atmosphere for the younger members within the credit union, thus giving them the feeling of belonging that they should feel when visiting the credit union.
