UFirst Wants to Help Your Kids Picture their Future!
We often look at pictures to remember the past, but are you ready to picture their future?
If you ask your children, they can likely picture a future they would like to live in. Some dream to become doctors and help people, others want to be known for their talent. My daughter Hannah (who is posing for this year's youth month) wants to be an elementary school teacher. For children and teenagers, their future brings limitless possibilities. But no matter what their dream is, financial education can be instrumental in helping them to achieve their goals.
The theme for this year's Youth Month is "The Future is yours...Picture it! Save for it! Share it!. Together, we're encouraging youngsters to express themselves through photography, sharing their visions for their own financial futures so we can help them get there.
Check out how your credit union is celebrating youth during the month of April!
- Open a new youth savings account and we'll cover the $5 deposit. Plus we'll give your child a cute little piggy bank to give them a place to start saving their coins!
- Click here and have your child complete the "Future is Yours" drawing page. Bring it back in to us, send it to us via Facebook messenger or email it to Meg at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30th. Our staff will vote for their favorites and the top three drawings will win a prize!
- Stop by one of our branches with the kiddos on Friday, April 26th for some treats and fun take-a-ways!
As your trusted financial partner, we want to help teach your children the importance of good financial habits. Together we can help them fulfill their dreams, no matter how big or small. After all, the future is theirs.
And coming soon...the Burghy Jr. app!! Our new app is just for our junior members! It teaches kids good money habits using what they know best, technology! It's a fun and interactive way for your children to learn the basics of spend, save and share. Keep watching for more details coming soon!
