Report Youth Financial Education Presentations and Fairs to NYIB by July 5
You’ve probably heard in the past that Michigan leads the nation in credit union youth financial education, an important distinction that shows the credit union commitment in this area. MCUL & Affiliates bases this on national reports collected by the National Youth Involvement Board.
MCUL wants to be able to continue to tell lawmakers, teachers and community leaders about how Michigan credit unions are highly involved in helping youth build a strong financial future, but we can’t do that without the numbers to prove it. On both a state and national level, strong numbers illustrate how vibrant and effective the dedication of reaching and teaching youth is within the credit union industry.
The NYIB presentation year runs from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017, to coincide with the typical school year. Credit union youth financial educators are invited to take a few minutes to report presentations and financial reality fairs conducted for young people ages 5 to 22 by any credit union staff member or volunteer by the July 5 reporting deadline.
Registering and reporting is easy on the NYIB website. Any presentation that promotes financial literacy or the credit union movement qualifies. Financial fairs such as Mad City Money and Reality Fairs should also be reported. Presentations do not have to be in a traditional classroom setting. Qualifying presentations can include those to young members or to any church or community youth groups or with schools, libraries and community colleges.
Reporting totals will be released at the NYIB’s Annual Conference, nyib.org July 24–27 in Boston. Credit union professionals engaged in reaching youth are invited to attend.
