Credit Union Youth Month Giveaways and Banzai Contest
Credit Union Youth Month is focused on giving back to our local communities. At P1FCU we are encouraging smart savings through our FREE Banzai Direct program. Experience the credit union difference with this amazing program.
“The Science of Saving,” theme showcases fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s Youth Month inspires children to begin saving so they may understand the true value of a dollar.
Piggy Bank Giveaway:
In celebration of Credit Union Youth Month, we are giving away piggy banks to children 12 and under when they make a deposit* into their P1FCU account!
*Children 12 and under must be on the account and be present to receive a piggy bank.
Banzai for Teachers
P1FCU is a strong advocate of financial literacy. We believe that when kids learn about money and saving at a young age they will grow up to be financially savvy! For this reason we have partnered with Banzai to offer FREE financial literacy curriculum in schools. Using Banzai's unique technology, P1FCU helps teach students to navigate financial dilemmas with real-life scenarios. The students learn by doing. P1FCU has sponsored 239 schools and over 14,500 students in our local communities over the past four years. We are proud of the impact this program has had on the lives of local youth.
One teacher said, “Thank you so much for this wonderful program. It has opened the eyes of my students to a better understanding of budgeting and just how much their parents possibly spend. Thank you for caring about our students, and understanding that teachers do not have unlimited resources and not charging for this program.”
Due to the success of Banzai for Teachers we decided to expand our financial literacy program and offer three more courses for kids, teens, and adults.
