You are never too young or old to learn how to manage your money! For nearly 15 years, AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union has taken the initiative to teach our community about their finances with topics including money management skills, the importance of budgeting, and the importance of being responsible with credit. Among our many financial literacy initiatives, AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union has two student branches located in area high schools. Additionally, AmeriChoice visits local schools and teaches students about financial literacy and the importance of saving. For our older youth members, we have a MyChoice Teen Club for members ages Financial literacy workshops are taught at area school districts throughout South Central Pennsylvania.
Banzai, Real World Financial Literacy | CSE Federal Credit Union
The Reality Fair concept is a unique opportunity for students to experience some of the financial challenges they will face when they start life on their own. Additional expenditures such as entertainment and travel are factored in as well. Throughout the fair, there are many temptations for additional spending, and students must learn to balance their wants and needs to live on their own. After the students have visited the various booths covering components of independent living, students balance their budget, and then sit down with a financial counselor for review. The Foundation encourages state leagues and foundations to support state-wide coordinated programs which increases the number of students that have access to this experience and the number of credit unions who can provide support.
