It is finally here!
Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union.” It uses the image of a magical rainbow with a wish-fulfilling gold star at the end. We want to tell young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.
G.A.P. FCU has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With a youth saving account that earns compound interest, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and watch their savings grow “like magic.” The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow, and the easier it will be to achieve their dreams. Learning this good financial habit at a young age will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.
If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Week is a great opportunity to start! Join us July 25-29, 2022 as credit unions across the country encourage youth to start saving regularly. This celebration is a great time to engage kids at G.A.P. FCU and within your community to help them learn that saving, no matter how small the amount, can help them achieve their dreams.
