Get Involved in April Financial Education Events 

National Financial Literacy Month is recognized in April in an effort to highlight the importance of financial literacy and teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits.  This brings a nationwide focus on financial education and is a perfect time for credit unions to demonstrate their dedication and outreach in this area. 

Several organized financial education initiatives can help your credit union expand involvement in and highlight your financial education outreach activities in April. Credit unions are encouraged to participate in the financial education activities in the following articles about National Youth Saving Challenge, Credit Union Youth Week, the MCUL Financial Legislative Challenge and Money Smart Week.
