April is "Youth Savings Month" at Rose City FCU

Financial literacy is a crucial life skill for young people. but it's one that too few are learning.

That's why in April, Rose City Federal Credit Union is focusing on helping youth become more financially fit. For the entire month, Rose City FCU will be hosting events that will help local youth strengthen their money skills and pump up their savings.

Youth fitness has become a national priority, with an emphasis on exercise and proper nutrition. With all the hurdles facing young people in the future, historic levels of student debt, we believe financial fitness is just as important.

The theme of the month-long event is Credit Union Strong. Like all credit unions, Rose City FCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative.

Member education and concern for the community are part of the foundational principles of our business structure. Passing along basic money skills to the next generation so that these kids might have a brighter future embodies both those principles, and that's what we believe it means to be credit union strong.

Join us at either branch during April for Youth Month. Youth accounts are for those that are 17 years and younger. To start a youth account you will need a $5 deposit and the Social Security card. If the child is old enough to have a picture ID we will need that as well. The parent or guardian that is a member will also need to be join on the account.
