Promotion of Financial Literacy
Here at Royal we are passionate about financial education at any age, it is never too late to start, but the younger the better! Financial education is an important part of the credit union difference, as we want to set up all Members for success. The theme for this year’s National Credit Union Youth Month is “Saving with Royal Credit Union is Dinoriffic”. With the help from their dinosaur friends, Save-asourus Rex, Penny-Dactyl, Tri-Save-A-Lots, our young Members will learn about saving, spending, and budgeting.
Getting a head start on financial literacy is essential for young Members so they can be adult Members who are confident in their finances. Royal serves as an ally and resource for parents as they begin to teach their kids financial responsibility and the importance of financial literacy.
If you have been wondering about how to start a conversation about finances with the children in your life, Youth Month is a great place to start! Check out our National Credit Union Youth Month worksheet to get a jump start on financial education. Join Royal along with credit unions across the country this April for fun and educational activities on financial health. Celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month with Royal while developing healthy financial habits will be dinoriffic!
