Youth Month

April is National Credit Union Youth Month

In April we will celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month; this year’s theme is “The future is yours… Picture it! Save for it! Share it!”. Together with Credit Unions around the country Kent County Credit Union is encouraging youngsters to express themselves and share their visions for their own financial futures so we can help them get there.

Research shows that when you picture yourself in the future achieving a goal, like becoming a ballet dancer or going to college, saving for it becomes easier.  Start small. Help your children save for a toy they want. Then sign them up for their very own savings account and help them picture their long term goals and how they can save to make them come true.

We want to help you teach your children good financial habits. Together we can help them fulfill their dreams no matter big or small.

KCCU is inviting you to draw a picture of a savings goal.  From saving for college to a bike, or summer camp to a soccer ball, if you can picture it, you can save for it.  Bring us your picture and you will be entered to win a $100 Youth CD (24 month) plus a $25 Meijer gift card. A second place winner will also receive a $25 Meijer gift card. Winners will be chosen by random on or around May 8, 2019. No purchase/deposit required.

Rules:

  • Child must be a KCCU member, age 17 or younger
  • One entry per member
  • Deadline to turn entry into a branch is 5:00 PM, April 30, 2019
