EAU CLAIRE Wis. – Royal Credit Union (Royal) is celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month in April. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big.” and encourages kids to develop healthy saving habits by making it fun and exciting. Royal wants to show young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how large the may seem.
With a Kid’s Club saving account that earns 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 good financial habits 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 Month is a great opportunity to start!
Here are the ways Royal is celebrating in April:
All Royal Members 12 years old and under are automatically enrolled in Kid’s Club, which makes them eligible for prizes and invitations to exclusive Kid’s Club events. During the month of April any new Savings Account opened for children 12 years old and younger will have the initial $5.00 deposited by Royal. Only one savings account per person is allowed. Starting April 4, Kid’s Club Members can visit any Royal location to sign up to win a “Save Small. Dream Big.” gift basket. Winners will be announced and contacted the week of April 25.
Royal also offers the School $ense program; 29 student-run credit union locations in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools across Wisconsin and Minnesota. During the month of April, participating Royal elementary School $ense locations will hold a classroom worksheet challenge that teachers will complete with students for a chance to win an activity basket for their students. The worksheet will showcase how starting small can lead to something big! Each prize basket will include items for each of the students in the winning classroom, along with something fun for the classroom to enjoy as a whole.
