#YouthMonth What is Credit Union Strong?

Our April 25-29 youth celebration is focused on the theme of Credit Union Strong.

Young people face a bewildering financial landscape in their immediate future—one where technology has made spending as easy as breathing and the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. That’s why we believe it’s more important than ever to ensure our youth possess strong money management skills.

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our core values include member education and social responsibility. We care about the community where we live and work, and the people in it. We look forward to watching the next generation grow and make it even better.

By instilling the habit of saving at a young age, offering positive encouragement, and providing financial education, we can prepare our community’s youngest members for brighter futures by helping them grow into financially capable adults. Credit union strong means having the money skills to embrace an awesome future, and leaving your community better than you found. That’s why we take our mission of helping youth so seriously.

Of course, we realize the biggest influence on anyone’s life is his or her parents. So if you want to start your kids on a path to financial strength, participating in Credit Union Youth Month is a good start.

Bring your financial fitness buffs into Superior Choice Credit Union and help them pump up their savings. Here's a list of events we have planned for April 25-29:

  • Each branch of SCCU will host a Credit Union Strong coloring contest for kids up to age 12. Stop by your nearest SCCU branch to pick up the coloring contest page or click here to download the printable coloring page PDF. Each branch will randomly select the winner of a $25 VISA gift card after April 29.
  • All students who make a deposit at the SCCU school credit union during April 25-29 will be entered to win a drawing for a $25 VISA gift card. A random winner will be selected after April 29.
  • From April 25-29, SCCU will deposit the first $5 into new accounts that are opened by anyone 18 years of age and under. (Membership eligibility required. Federally insured by the NCUA. Special is only available 4/25/2016-4/29/2016. Offer is subject to change or discontinue at any time.)
