In this episode, we talk with two credit unions who have held an annual “kids day” or “youth day” for children in their communities. These are free events for families to attend, attracting hundreds of people. The events encourage savings, new memberships, engagement with community partners, along with financial education, fun, games and much more.
For more information, you’ll hear from MSU Federal Credit Union in Michigan and Bear Paw Credit Union in Montana. They share details of their respective events and what they’ve learned over the years.
“It’s really fun to see how much excitement and joy the kids are having and to know that the credit union was a part of making even a few hours of that child’s day just great.”- Deidra Davis, MSU FCU
“Everybody loves it and we always get great feedback from everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad comment on our Youth Day.” – Caitlin Teske, Bear Paw Credit Union
