WESTconsin Credit Union Wants to Help Youth Unleash the Power of Savings


Empowering your future doesn’t need to start with much. The first small step is usually the hardest, but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to unleash your power to save. This year’s theme for National Credit Union Youth Month is “Unleash the Power of Saving at Your Credit Union.” We want to tell young members that they have the power to save for their future, no matter how big or small the amount.

WESTconsin Credit Union has tools to help youth unleash this power. With a youth saving account that earns 2.27% APY*, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and watch their savings grow. The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow! Learning this good financial habit at a young age will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.

If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union Youth Month is a great time to start! During the month of April, all WESTconsin offices will be holding giveaways and promoting financial education activities. Plus, offices are accepting new or gently used children’s books to donate to a variety of local community partners, including:

  • Clayton Elementary School
  • Greenfield Elementary School
  • Youth and Family Services-Barron County
  • River Source Family Center
  • Eau Claire Boys and Girls Club
  • Ellsworth Public Library
  • Hudson Public Library
  • Tiffany Creek Elementary School
  • Salvation Army Grace Place
  • Prescott Public Library
  • River Falls Little Free Library

Youth Month is a fun time to engage kids at WESTconsin Credit Union and within our community to help them learn that saving, no matter how small the amount, can help empower their future.

*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. APY accurate as of 3/1/2023 and subject to change at any time. Balances above $2,500 are paid the Membership Savings rate.
