San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
San Francisco mortgage lenders, The San Francisco Federal Credit Union will be hosting Youth Day on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to noon at its main branch located on 770 Golden Gate Ave. in San Francisco. Each and every year, National Credit Union Youth Week takes place in April. For the occasion, the San Francisco Federal Credit Union will host a variety of events that will teach children how to handle their personal finances. Learning these basics of finance will help youth members learn to save, budget and plan accordingly for their future so they don’t get tangled up in debt later in their lives.
The San Francisco Federal Credit Union is participating because they recognize that the road to financial fitness starts with the youth of today. The credit union wants to ensure that each child takes their finances seriously and are properly prepared for their future. San Francisco Federal Credit Union wants to make the learning fun and enjoyable for the whole family! These events will benefit the parents as well, so they are encouraged to join in.
Workshops that will be held are: Money Starters for Super Savers, specifically targeted for youths ages 6 to 8. Here, the children will learn how money works and how to become a good saver. An additional workshop for ages 9 to 12 will focus specifically on the importance of saving, spending and budgeting. For the teens, ages 13 to 18, a hands-on simulation will educate them on how to handle credit card debt, student loans, salary and much more.
Parents will also get the chance to join in, as San Francisco Federal Credit Union will host an event called “Family Fun Night on a Dime.” This segment will guide parents on various ways to educate their children on the basics of personal finance, how to make it fun and tips on how to stay involved.
“San Francisco Federal Credit Union is excited to participate in another successful Youth Day celebration,” Courtney Derby, Membership Development Manager of San Francisco Federal Credit Union, said. “We hope the workshops provided are not only helpful to our youth members, but entertaining too.
