Be a Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct.
Teaching financial education is a daunting task. As intimidating as it is, assisting our Global parents with promoting financial health to our youngest members is of utmost importance at Global Credit Union.
The theme for this year’s 2021 Youth Month is Be a Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct. Together, we’re encouraging our youngest members to open their own savings account (with a parent or guardian’s help), begin a habit of putting money into that account regularly and learn how compound interest helps their account to grow.
As more Americans seek financial guidance and more credit unions begin to offer services like financial counseling, it’s essential to consider initiatives that also educate young members. Let’s face it, if parents have trouble managing money, you can imagine that it’s going to be even more challenging for them to have conversations about money with their kids. Global Credit Union can serve as an important ally for parents in their mission to teach their kids to be financially responsible. Providing this kind of support and education is how we hope to build long-term member loyalty.
How to get started:
Step one: Swing into any Global Credit Union branch/ in-store member service center location.

Step two: Choose from three youth accounts that have been specially designed with your little one in mind.
Step three: Begin assisting your kiddo with the save, spend, share philosophy using these Global resources.
This year’s kid-friendly theme emphasizes the benefits of wise saving habits using fun dinosaur characters. That’s why each Global Credit Union branch will be passing out customizable dinos.
If you have been wondering how to get your kiddos excited to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity! This celebration is an excellent time to engage youth with healthy money habits.
