Celebrating our Youth with a Piggy Bank Full of Fun

We know that education makes for a stronger community—one that’s empowered to make the world a better place to live—and that’s why we’re passionate about educating our youth on a variety of financial topics.

We had a blast celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month by hosting events throughout April designed to boost healthy spending and saving habits.

 

We kicked off our celebrations by giving Cub Scout Pack 3932 of Manitowoc County a tour of our Two Rivers branch, showing them how to deposit money, how loans work and giving them a sneak peek inside the vault to count change.

 

Verve team members also took our interactive financial literacy lessons to local high schools to teach students about all things financial from opening an account to student loans to budgeting and retirement.

 

We also gave away money-filled piggy banks to the 16 lucky kiddos with the closest answer in our “Guess How Much” contest.

 

To top it all off, we shared some great money tips and resources for parents (including a downloadable savings tracker guide), gave quarter saver books to kids who opened new accounts at Verve branches with their parents during April AND we matched the first $5 deposit on all new kids’ accounts opened during the month.
