What is Youth Financial Literacy Month?

Every April, National Credit Union Youth Month strives to encourage kids to develop healthy savings habits and learn more about managing money as they grow into young adults.  

Why is it important?

When children learn good money habits early on they are more likely to keep them, and use them throughout their lives. 

Where do you start?

For young learners books, games, and activities are a great way to introduce financial lessons. Begin with the basics and add new topics and skills as they grow. Look for everyday opportunities to engage your kids, and model positive habits whenever possible. Check out some our favorite resources below, including:

  • It’s a Money Thing  and It's a Money Thing Jr. - Let Jen and her friends help you introduce fundamental money management the fun way! In short, animated videos kids can learn all about saving, earning an income, borrowing, and more! 
  • Financial Football - The National Football League and Visa® team up to teach financial concepts with a fast paced game of football. Kids gain yardage and score points by answering questions correctly, but a wrong answer can cause a financial fumble. 
  • FDIC -  The FDIC has complete lessons that dive a little deeper, with topics that help prepare young adults for what's next.
