April is Youth Month

Go Wild about saving at your credit union!

Every child harbors dreams of a bright and fulfilling future. Those dreams often come with a financial component, making it crucial for parents to instill the value of saving money in their children. This year, let's embark on an exciting journey of financial literacy and savings with the theme, "Wild about saving at your credit union."

Cultivating Lifelong Habits

Teaching children the importance of saving from an early age can set the foundation for a lifetime of financial responsibility. By starting with small, achievable goals, kids can develop the habit of saving money regularly. This not only prepares them for future financial challenges but also instills a sense of discipline and foresight.

Special Offer: $5 Savings Coupon

During April, SCCU will deposit $5 into every new youth savings account for individuals aged 0-17. This not only kickstarts their savings journey but also provides a tangible reward, making the experience both educational and enjoyable.
