Celebrate Youth Month

by Taylor Trail | Mar 31, 2021
Providing financial education embodies the movement’s ‘people-helping people philosophy. "Be a Credit Union Savor and Your Savings will Never Go Extinct!" during Youth Month.

Providing financial education embodies the movement’s ‘people helping people philosophy. Together, we’re encouraging our youngest members to learn common financial concepts such as: 

  • Saving
  • Spending
  • Charitable Giving
  • Investing
  • Budgeting

MSDFCU and our youth resources can serve as an important ally for you in your mission to teach kids to be financially responsible.

The theme for this year is "Be a Credit Union Savor and Your Savings will Never Go Extinct!" This pre-historic theme makes it fun for kids to save for their future and helps them find joy in setting aside a little money for everyday spending and helping others.
