Learn the Science of Saving

Learn the science of saving during National Credit Union Youth Month

Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help your children achieve their dreams?

One way is to help them learn how to save their money. In April, Scott Credit Union is celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month, which is a program that helps teach and encourage kids to develop good financial habits.

During Youth Month, every member under the age of 18 who opens a new Kidz Club or Teen Share minor savings account will be entered in our special Youth Month contest. One lucky winner will have their savings account balance doubled* up to $500! Opening an account is easy, and we’ll even give you the first $5 to get started.

Plus, if you stop by a branch in April, your child can enjoy:

    • A coloring contest for ages 12 and under
    • Free cookies in SCU branches on Fridays
  • A free gift when you open a new minor savings account
  • A special in-branch prize drawing**

The theme this year is “The Science of Saving,” showcasing fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s Youth Month inspires children to begin saving the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.

*A $5 minimum deposit is required to open a savings account. An adult must be a co-owner on Kidz Club and Teen Share accounts. Full official rules are available here.
