MADISON, Wis.-CUNA has set the week of April 13-19, 2003 as National Credit Union Youth Week. The celebration’s theme, “Youth Count at Credit Unions,” is intended to encourage credit unions to be mindful of the financial needs of consumers under 18. “We were very happy with the response last year, not only to the idea of National Credit Union Youth Week, but at the number of credit unions that reported active participation,” CUNA President and CEO Dan Mica commented. “Youth week really is a great way for credit unions to make young people aware of the issues and challenges surrounding the wise use of money-and how credit unions can be their partner and ally.” He added that the effort complements CUNA’s efforts with the National Endowment for Financial Education’s High School Financial Planning Program and the observance of International Credit Union Week activities celebrated every October. Promotional materials will be available to credit unions at CUNA’s web site (, CUNA Director for Youth Education Phil Heckman said. He explained that CUNA is working with the Cooperative Extension System, leagues and other credit union organizations, most notably the National Youth Involvement Board, to promote National Credit Union Youth Week.
