Attend Foundation’s Youth-Focused Twitter Chat on 4/20
Thursday, April 14, 2016 6:35 AM

In conjunction with National Credit Union Youth Month, the National Credit Union Foundation is hosting a Twitter chat for credit unions on Wednesday, April 20, at 3 p.m. (CT). The Foundation invites credit unions to discuss their activities to help youth get financially fit.

“The National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) recently tested teens on areas covered within national financial literacy standards,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation director of communications. “The results were shocking; while only 4.7 percent of participants got an A on the test, 62.4 percent got a D or an F. Thankfully, credit unions are making strides in this area, which is why the Foundation is pleased to facilitate this discussion.”

During the Twitter chat, credit unions and their staff are encouraged to share best practices and examples of their efforts to reach youth such as financial literacy programs, community outreach, products and services, in-school branches and more. San Diego County Credit Union from San Diego, Calif. will be featured in the Twitter chat as a special guest.
