April is Credit Union Youth Month
April is National Credit Union Youth Month and Ukrainian Federal Credit Union (UFCU) wants to help kids unleash the power of saving! Our youth are our future, and we are committed to setting them up for financial success. That is why we have a special savings account – the Mitten Club – just for our members aged 0 to 17, and not just that, UFCU will offer various incentives throughout the month of April to encourage our youth to save small and dream big. And parents, grandparents, we need your help to make this happen!

UFCU has tools to help make saving a regular habit. With a Mitten Club youth savings account that earns compound 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 this good financial habit 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! Join us this April as credit unions across the country encourage youth to start saving regularly.
