April is National Credit Union Youth Month — Unleash the Power of Saving at Your Credit Union

This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Unleash the Power of Saving at Your Credit Union.” The goal is to promote financial literacy and education among young people, helping them to develop good money management habits and achieve financial security as they grow into adulthood. In today’s world, where financial literacy is increasingly important, it’s crucial to start learning about money management from an early age.
