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, LFCU will focus on helping young people develop good saving habits. LFCU 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 LFCU CEO Jeffery Trickett.
In addition to the savings challenge, LFCU will offer financial education and fun events for youth. Like all credit unions, Trickett said, LFCU 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,” Trickett said. “Passing along a crucial life skill to the next generation to prepare them for a bright future embodies both those principles.”
