Learning to save for what you want in life is a crucial life skill, but it’s one too few young people are learning.
That’s why for financially literacy month in April, CSE Federal Credit Union will focus on helping young people develop good saving habits. CSE will host a savings challenge for the entire month, encouraging young people to save for something they care about and offering prizes for participating.
The theme of the event is Give a Hoot About Saving. “Owls represent wisdom, and nothing is wiser than learning to save for one’s future goals,” said CSE Federal Credit Union, Director of Marketing Colleen Desselle.
In addition to the savings challenge, CSE will offer financial education and fun events for youth. Like all credit unions, Desselle said, CSE is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative.
“Member education and concern for the community are part of the foundational principles of our business structure,” Desselle said. “Passing along a crucial life skill to the next generation to prepare them for a bright future embodies both those principles.”
