Greater Niagara FCU says learning to save for what one wants in life is a crucial life skill, but it's one too few young people are learning.

That's why, for financial literacy month in April, Greater Niagara FCU will host a savings challenge that encourages young people to save for something they care about - and provides a chance to win prizes for simply making a deposit into a savings account.

Greater Niagara FCU will also offer workshops for local youth groups focused on helping young people develop good saving habits and increasing financial literacy in Niagara County.

Like all credit unions, Greater Niagara FCU CEO Carolyn DuBois explained, Greater Niagara FCU is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative. And "Member education and concern for the community are part of the foundational principles of our business structure," she said. "Passing along a crucial life skill to the next generation to prepare them for a bright future embodies both those principles."

Visit Greater Niagara FCU online at www.GreaterNiagaraFCU.com or at one of its branches (2901 Military Road, Niagara Falls, or 160 Ward Road, North Tonawanda) for more information about the youth month contest and how to enter.

The youth workshop offer by Greater Niagara FCU is available all year, but the number of workshops is limited. Contact Jennifer at 716-297-5944, ext. 314, or [email protected] to arrange for a Niagara County youth group to experience this financial literacy workshop and "Give a Hoot About Savings."
