April marks the beginning of National Financial Literacy Month, which highlights the importance of financial wellness and literacy and teaches Americans how to develop healthy financial habits.
National Financial Literacy Month also encourages Americans to take control of their finances by providing comprehensive financial education in communities nationwide.
Credit union advocates are encouraged to get involved with National Financial Literacy Month by using the Twitter hashtag #NationalFinancialLiteracyMonth to let others know that their credit union is making a difference in young members’ lives.

As reported in yesterday’s edition of The New York Minute, April is also National Credit Union Youth Month, which promotes the benefits of youth saving and goal-setting by inviting young members to open savings accounts and make deposits throughout the year. A number of resources are available on CUNA’s website.
