National Credit Union Youth Week™ is the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) official designation of an annual, national celebration for credit unions that support youth financial literacy all year long. It’s an opportunity to formally acknowledge young members and encourage them to start—and maintain—a habit of saving.
April is National Financial Literacy Month, and the National Youth Saving Challenge™ will again run the entire month. Your credit union can participate for just a week or all month…choose the days that work best in your community.
Saving Challenge: Any time during April 2013
Youth Week: April 21-27, 2013
Include Youth Week in Your 2013 Budget
There will be a great selection of specially designed items to give your young members from pens to piggy banks. Many items can be customized and most will be available to use in your youth programs all year long. Also available will be big bills, educational handouts, and activity books.
