New Biz Kid$ “Did You Know?” YouTube Videos Highlight Resources for Credit Unions

The National Credit Union Foundation has released 10 short “Did You Know?” video clips to help credit unions learn about the many resources the Biz Kid$ website has to offer.

This new YouTube playlist collects the videos that demonstrate all the benefits that the Biz Kid$ website provides. These 10 video clips include insight into Biz Kid$ Family Activities, Community Toolkits, the Biz Kid$ Blog and more.

“The Biz Kid$ website is a great free resource for parents, teachers, and kids looking to enhance their financial literacy education and programs.” said Danielle Brown, the Foundation’s Director of Development & Donor Relations. “We encourage credit unions to check out all the tools that Biz Kid$ provides to help improve and engage youth in financial education.”

Biz Kid$ – Teaching Kids About Money & Business

Biz Kid$ is a financial literacy initiative launched nationally in January 2008 that teaches kids about money and business. The initiative includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, and a website targeting children 9 – 16 years old.  The Foundation is responsible for the fundraising and outreach of the program, and a coalition of over 300 credit unions and affiliates from across the country have helped exclusively fund Biz Kid$.

Many credit unions leverage Biz Kid$ to teach financial education in schools in their community. In addition to the Foundation’s box sets and starter kits, companion materials and other resources for teachers and parents are available at no cost on the Biz Kid$ website, bizkids.com.

The credit unions of Oregon and Washington not only improve their members’ lives, they are foundational to the entire Northwest economy. Learn more here.
