Education-Based Membership? Credit Unions Celebrate Teachers Financial Education Event Geared Toward Your Members

Financial trends across the U.S. continue to tell the same story: young adults are worried about their financial future, yet many are not confident in their financial know-how and are unsure about where to seek trusted advice. These are the consequences of lackluster financial education. Credit unions seek to ensure the next generation of consumers more literate, responsible and prepared financially.

CUNA, NCUF, NWCUF & your Association are hosting K-12 educators from Washington schools for an open house, sharing best practices in financial education. The “Credit Unions Give Back to Seattle” event is on June 26, during America’s Credit Union Conference (ACUC) in Seattle from June 26-29. Credit unions with education-focused membership are encouraged to share the event with their members.

Educators will gain practical strategies and revealing insights, along with a free Biz Kid$ Starter Kit—including a suggested curriculum, training tips, a DVD and more—tailored to Washington state financial education standards.

“Credit Unions are passionate about financial education, and it is our goal to enhance students financial well-being, one precept at a time.” said Jamie Dedmon, Managing Director for the Northwest Credit Union Foundation.
