Credit Union Strong - The Youth Savings Challenge

Posted by Gabby Boyce on Mar 29, 2016 3:52:00 PM


April is National Youth Savings Month! To celebrate, First Financial Credit Union is hosting a Youth Savings Challenge to help our young savers become Credit Union strong.


What is Credit Union Strong?

Our month-long youth celebration is focused on the theme of Credit Union Strong.

Young people face a bewildering financial landscape in their immediate future—one where technology has made spending as easy as breathing and the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. That’s why we believe it’s more important than ever to ensure our youth possess strong money management skills.

As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our core values include member education and social responsibility. We care about the community where we live and work, and the people in it. We look forward to watching the next generation grow and make it even better.

By instilling the habit of saving at a young age, offering positive encouragement, and providing financial education, we can prepare our community’s youngest members for brighter futures by helping them grow into financially capable adults. Credit union strong means having the money skills to embrace an awesome future, and leaving your community better than you found. That’s why we take our mission of helping youth so seriously.

Of course, we realize the biggest influence on anyone’s life is his or her parents. Start your kids on a path to financial strength. Bring your financial fitness buffs into a First Financial Credit Union branch to help them pump up their savings.

Youth Savings Challenge: The top 10 youth members to make the most deposits into their FFCU savings accounts will earn a prize.

Additionally, First Financial will make the first $25 deposit into new youth accounts opened in April 2016.


Deposits can be made in-person, mailed to any FFCU branch or made over the phone by calling us at 773-565-2000. Youth accounts must have a custodian or joint-owner over the age of 21.
