Youth Week noted in ICongressional RecordI
WASHINGTON (5/15/09)--The Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) National Credit Union Youth Week was noted in extended remarks of the Congressional Record, which was published Wednesday. The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the U.S. Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session. Youth Week was highlighted by the Hon. Ruben Hinojosa in the House during remarks he made supporting Financial Literacy Month, which took place in April. Hinojosa said, “Staff from America’s credit unions made presentations to young people at local schools on financial topics such as student loans, balancing a checkbook, and auto loans during National Credit Union Youth Week, April 19-25.” It’s important for Congress to support the goals and ideals of Financial Literacy Month, including raising public awareness about financial education, he added. Hinojosa ended with a statement by President Barack Obama in which Obama said financial literacy awareness and education must extend beyond Financial Literacy Month. CUNA has sponsored Youth Week since 2002. This year, CUNA’s National Saving Challenge, which ran for the entire month of April, exceeded last year’s deposit record by more than double. During the challenge, participating credit unions nationwide encourage youth to deposit their money into savings accounts.
