American Heritage Credit Union Celebrates Credit Union Youth Month with Interactive Workshops and Special Incentives
American Heritage Credit Union (American Heritage) is celebrating Youth Month, a program organized by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) that helps teach and encourage younger members develop strong financial habits.
American Heritage officially kicked off the month by hosting its Raising Money Savvy Kids event at its Philadelphia headquarters on March 31, 2019. At the event, parents and children learned tips on how to get kids interested in money, setting goals, and how to make saving a habit. The children who attended also created their own savings jars.
To further promote healthy savings tips for children and teenagers, American Heritage is matching any deposit made into a new or current youth account, up to $10*, from April through June this year.
American Heritage has a strong commitment to helping the children in surrounding communities gain important financial literacy skills through workshops, in-branch teller interactions, and even by providing customized youth accounts. By introducing age-appropriate, real-life skills, American Heritage Youth Account Members can master healthy money habits before they even start their first job. American Heritage offers five youth accounts, all tailored for different age groups, spending and savings habits, to encourage and teach children on their path to financial success.
“We have a proud legacy of helping children establish good savings habits from the start. This sets them up for success throughout their lives,” states American Heritage President & CEO Bruce Foulke. “Since April is Financial Literacy Month, it’s a great time for smart money management to be top-of-mind for the whole family. American Heritage is proud to count thousands of children among our membership, and we are devoted to helping our young members learn about financial wellness. This special youth savings incentive is another way we are investing in the future of our credit union and our next generation of members.”
