Throughout the month of April, Credit Unions around the world are participating in a month-long youth celebration focused on the theme of Credit Union Strong.
Young people face a bewildering financial landscape in their immediate future—one where technology has made spending as easy as breathing and the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. That’s why we believe it’s more important than ever to ensure our youth possess strong money management skills.
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our core values include member education and social responsibility. We care about the community where we live and work, and the people in it. We look forward to watching the next generation grow and make it even better.
By instilling the habit of saving at a young age, offering positive encouragement, and providing financial education, we can prepare our community’s youngest members for brighter futures by helping them grow into financially capable adults. Credit union strong means having the money skills to embrace an awesome future. That’s why we take our mission of helping youth so seriously.
Of course, we realize the biggest influence on anyone’s life is his or her parents. So if you want to start your kids on a path to financial strength, participating in Credit Union Youth Month is a good start.
For the Month of April, introduce your child, grandchild, niece, or nephew, 18 and under, to the EEFCU and the benefit saving and of being a credit union member. Sign them up for a Saving Account and the EEFCU will put $15 of the $25 initial deposit in their new account. In addition their name will be added into a drawing for $25 cash.*
