GFA wants to help your kids fulfill their big dreams.

A youth savings account can encourage kids to practice good financial habits that will enable them to fulfill their dreams.

Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union.” We want to tell young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.

GFA has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With a Student Tycoon youth saving account that earns interest, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and watch their savings grow “like magic.” The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow, and the easier it will be to achieve their dreams. Learning this good financial habit at a young age will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.

If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start! This April GFA and credit unions across the country are encouraging youth to start saving regularly. This celebration is a great time to engage kids within our community to help them learn that saving, no matter how small the amount, can help them achieve their dreams.

A fun and easy way to get them thinking about this year's theme is to download this coloring page and color together.
