April is Credit Union Youth Month
Don’t leave money Lion around!
It’s the perfect time of year to teach your kids about money and saving for the future. Stop by any 1DCU branch and ask about our Young Detroit Checking accounts or Seymour Bucks for younger children. Then, download a special coloring sheet by clicking on the image below, just for fun.
To help children learn the benefits of saving at an early age, we have a Share Savings account designed for those under the age of 13. Kids can receive a $5 deposit once their savings punch card is full (1 punch earned for $5 minimum deposit per day). They can also earn $.50 for each "A" or "S" received in major subjects on current report cards.
Learning resources for kids
At One Detroit Credit Union, we value the education of children and are happy to provide resources we feel will help them with math and understanding the value of money and the monetary systems that affect our lives each day.
We have reviewed the following links to the best of our ability and find them suitable. However, we are not the administrators of these sites, therefore we can not be held responsible for their content.
