April is Youth Month!

This April, WyHy is excited to join in the national celebration of Credit Union Youth Month, a time dedicated to teaching our youngest members about the importance of financial literacy and fostering sound money habits early in life.

At WyHy, we believe that financial education is a cornerstone of a prosperous future, and what better way to begin this journey than during Youth Month 2024?

Earning and Learning: The Path to Financial Wisdom

At the heart of financial literacy is understanding the value of money—how it's earned and how it can be managed wisely. You can encourage young savers to start by earning money through household chores or small jobs. This early lesson in responsibility helps them appreciate the effort behind every dollar earned.

Savings Goals: Dream Big, Start Small

Dreams start with savings, and at WyHy, we're here to make those dreams a reality. Whether it's saving for a new game or a special toy, setting savings goals is a crucial step. Our young savers are encouraged to use piggy banks or better yet, open a savings account with us, where they can watch their savings grow and learn the basics of banking.

Financial Fun: Counting Money and More

Learning to count money is just the beginning. We introduce our youth to various payment methods, including cash and digital payments, making every transaction an opportunity for learning. It's not just about spending; it's about making informed financial decisions.

Generosity and Patience: Values for Life

Financial education isn't complete without lessons in charity and the importance of delayed gratification. Encouraging our young ones to allocate part of their money for gifts or charity instills a sense of community and generosity. Similarly, teaching them the value of saving for something they truly want fosters patience and wise spending habits.

Special Celebrations for Youth Month 2024

If your loved little ones don’t already have an account with WyHy this is the time to start! This Youth Month, we're making the journey even more exciting with BUCKS!
