To help kick-off National Financial Literacy Month, the National Credit Union Foundation is hosting a Twitter chat for credit unions on Wednesday, April 5th at 3 pm (CT). The Foundation invites credit unions to discuss their financial education activities during the chat.
“In April and all year long, credit unions excel at strengthening their member’s financial well-being through their various financial education efforts,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation Director of Communications.
On behalf of America’s credit unions, the National Credit Union Foundation accepted the U.S. Gold President’s Volunteer Service Award for the 2015-2016 school year. This award was presented by Junior Achievement (JA) USA, an official certifying organization for this award, at JA’s 2017 Volunteer Summit on March 7, 2017 for the over 15,000 volunteer hours dedicated to Junior Achievement programs by America’s credit unions.
The President’s Volunteer Service Award is a U.S. presidential recognition program created by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation for individuals and organizations who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer service.
On this podcast, we are going to be talking about Biz Kid$, one of our favorite financial education programs. This comes right in time for April, which is National Credit Union Youth Month.
Biz Kid$ is a financial literacy initiative launched nationally in 2008 that teaches kids about money and business. The initiative includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities, and much more. To learn more about Biz Kid$ and all the ways credit unions can leverage it, we talk to our own Danielle Brown, Development and Donor Relations Director at the Foundation.
