April is Youth Savings Month
When children are taught about saving from a young age, they are more likely to develop into responsible savers. In April, we have special contests, prizes and workshops aimed at helping our youth and teen members learn the importance of saving.
How to Participate
Youth Savings Challenge - During the month of April, we want to help encourage our younger members to save. Each day a youth or teen accountholder makes a deposit into their account, they will be entered to win one of ten $100 cash prizes.* When they visit any of our offices this month and open a new account or make a deposit, they will also receive a special gift!
Get Started with a Savings Account - As a start, you can open a Youth (up to age 12) or Teen (ages 13-17) Savings Account for each child or teen in your family. We also offer a special youth club Add-To 12-month Term Certificate, which they can open with as little as $100. Youth/teen accountholders receive quarterly financial education newsletters and are entered into quarterly prize drawings.
Workshops for Parents and Teens
Parents and guardians of preschool and elementary aged children are encouraged to attend our Value of a Dollar Workshop about teaching kids about money on Tuesday, April 18th.
