Meriwest is Kicking Off Credit Union Youth Month

San Jose, CA - April 5, 2022

2022 National Credit Union Month theme: ‘Save small. Dream BIG. At Your Credit Union’

San Jose, CA – April 1, 2022 – Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union.” It uses the image of a magical rainbow with a wish-fulfilling gold star at the end. We want to tell young members that their dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.

Meriwest Credit Union has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With the FLOW youth checking account, teens and young adults age 13 to 20, can manage daily cash flow and learn the basics of financial responsibility. The earlier they open a FLOW checking account, the easier it will be to achieve their dreams and learn good habits to set them up on the path of successful financial well-being. 

If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to better prepare for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great opportunity to start! Join us this April as Meriwest and credit unions across the country encourage youth to become more financially independent.
