Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help your children achieve their dreams? One way is to help them learn how to save their money.

In April, Billings Federal Credit Union is celebrating Youth Month, which is a program that helps teach and encourage kids to develop good financial habits.

The theme this year is “The Science of Saving,” showcasing 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 the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.

Teach Your Children How to Save

To help your children get into the savings habit, start by having them cut out pictures of something they’d like to have someday and post the images where they’ll see them often. Then help them open a savings account at Billings Federal Credit Union. Encourage your child to make regular small deposits. Tell them their money will earn interest while it’s in their account. If they keep this routine going, they’ll quickly see their savings grows.

During the month of April, anyone who opens a youth account will get a piggy bank. Their name will also go into a drawing to win one of three prizes, a one year family pass to Zoo Montana, season pass to Oasis or AMC Theater gift card!
