 Cute kids hugging each other April is National Credit Union Youth Month and National Financial Literacy Month in an effort to raise public awareness on the importance of financial wellness specifically to those 18 and younger. Genisys Credit Union is encouraging their youngest members to share, spend, and save wisely through various programming efforts this April. 

“Our month-long campaign is meant to make the credit union a fun, approachable place for kids while providing them with the foundational knowledge of saving, earning, and spending,” said Jackie Buchanan, President & CEO of Genisys Credit Union.
