Community Financial engaging youth in financial education
PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Community Financial Credit Union celebrated “Credit Union Youth Week,” in efforts to expand its youth education program.
Community Financial and the Youth Education team provide educational activities and celebrations to provide area youth an opportunity to experience lifelong financial skills at a young age.
“Celebrations like ‘Credit Union Youth Week’ engage the youth in our communities. You can really see them become enthusiastic about opportunities at a credit union,” said Senior Education Partnership Coordinator Natalie McLaughlin. “They get hands-on experience and learn practical skills for when they are on their own in the future.”
During the week of April 21, 2014, Community Financial offered coloring sheets, prizes, and double punches for the student and youth members making deposits during the week.
“Credit Union Youth Week” is a national campaign prompted by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
CUNA coined 2014’s “National Credit Union Youth Week” as “Catch the $ave Wave!” Credit unions across the United States participated in activities for youth from April 21 to 26.
