Key Financial Education Initiatives for Wisconsin Credit Unions
An annual event for which credit unions provide activities and contests to teach young adults about the importance of saving early.
A joint effort by partner organizations to hold events, workshops and presentations that offer financial education. Events are held for all age groups and focus on helping people learn to better manage their personal finances. Credit unions are invited to become event partners.
More than 100 youth-run, in-school credit union branches statewide help young people develop a regular habit of saving. Research has shown that credit unions' practice of supporting in-class financial learning with access to savings accounts positively impacts young people's financial behaviors.
Sponsor a local teacher – or an employee who offers financial lessons in your community – to attend a series of week-long summer workshops in Madison that can help them improve the financial lessons they offer their students.
