Join the Conversation: NCUF Holds Youth-Focused Twitter Chat
As part of National Credit Union Youth Month, the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) is hosting a Twitter chat for credit unions on Wednesday, April 20 at 3 pm. (CT). The Foundation invites credit unions to discuss their activities to help youth get financially fit.
“The National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) recently tested teens on areas covered within national financial literacy standards,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation Director of Communications. “The results were shocking; while only 4.7% of participants got an A on the test, 62.4% got a D or an F. Thankfully, credit unions are making strides in this area, which is why the Foundation is pleased to facilitate this discussion.”
During the Twitter chat, credit unions and their staff are encouraged to share best practices and examples of their efforts to reach youth such as financial literacy programs, community outreach, products and services, in-school branches and more.
