Youth Month 2019

April 9th, 2019

Picture your Future this April!  AmeriChoice is celebrating National Credit Union Youth Month with fun and games for our youngest members.

Teaching children about their finances is something that will benefit them throughout their entire life.  Getting them started on the right foot is where AmeriChoice comes in.  We want to be their trusted financial partner for life.  If your child or teen doesn’t have an account, April is a great month to get them started.  Throughout April, we’re offering a match up to $25 for new Dollar Dog Kids Club and MyChoice Teen Club accounts.

AmeriChoice will also be releasing a series of age-appropriate eBooks starting on April 5th!  From pre-school age to high school, these books will present different topics, from some basic money concepts, saving, borrowing, budgeting, and spending for each age group.  The books are available as a free download from our website.   We will share on our social media when a new book has been released.

This year’s theme, “Picture Your Future” is a great way to start the conversation about money with your child.  Talk with your child about what some of your savings goals are, or some things that you had to save for when you were their age.  Have your child take or draw a picture of something that they’re saving for; college, a house, a car, a new phone and share it with us by tagging us on Facebook or Instagram, drop it off to one of our branches or email it to marketing@americhoice.org.  We’ll be putting a collage together at the end of the month to share with all of our members.

We will be bringing back our Secret Double Stamp Days for our Dollar Dog and MyChoice Teen Club members!  Our youth members will have the opportunity to get 2 stamps on five different days in April.  We’ll post the night before and the morning of a Secret Double Stamp Day so you don’t miss out.

Of course, we will have our Guess and Win jars at the branches, but this year, they’re filled with Swedish Fish candy.  The closest guess (without going over) will win the jar!

If you, or someone you know would like a FREE Financial Literacy presentation, please feel free to reach out to us at marketing@americhoice.org with the group, ages and what you would like covered.  We’re able to create a presentation for any age group, scout troop, church group or other organization.

We can’t wait to help your child picture their future with AmeriChoice!
