Preparations for Youth Week 2012 underway
MADISON, Wis. (8/15/11)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is seeking a theme for National Credit Union Youth Week, April 22-28. National Credit Union Youth Week is CUNA’s official designation of an annual, national celebration for credit unions that support youth financial literacy all year long. It’s also an opportunity to formally acknowledge young members and encourage them to start--and maintain--a saving habit. April is National Financial Literacy Month, and the National Youth Saving Challenge will run the entire month. Credit unions can participate for a week or the entire month. CUNA is asking for theme suggestions for the week. Deadline for suggestions is Aug. 19. Among the ideas suggested:
* Gold rush; * Olympics (the 2012 Olympics will be held in London next summer); * Science; and * Millionaire for a day.
A vote for the most popular them idea will be held later this month. Past themes include:
* 2011--Money rocks at my credit union (music); * 2010--Get in the saving game (sports); * 2009--The magic of saving (magic); * 2008--Got green? Grow it at your credit union (environment); * 2007--Stash your cash at the credit union (pirates); * 2006--My money. My credit union; * 2005--Want it? Save it. Get it; * 2004--Youth make a difference; * 2003--Youth count at credit unions; and * 2002--Your future. Your money. Your choice.
Replies are requested by August 19. CUNA offer specially designed items to young members. Many items can be customized and most will be available to use in youth programs all year long. CUNA will also have big bills, educational handouts, and activity books. CUNA will announce the availability of products in January.
