When you start with a goal and take small steps, your big dreams can become a reality. Teach your kids about smart money habits by opening a savings account at 1DCU and encourage them to add small amounts of money (from their allowance, gifts, or money earned doing chores). Over time, their savings will start to grow! When they're ready to cash in on their big dreams, their savings will be there to help them make that dream a reality. 

Learn more about our youth savings accounts below, and print a FREE coloring page to have fun with at home.

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.
