Celebrated as “Children & Youth Month” since 1938, April is the perfect time of year for everyone to demonstrate that Americans are committed to their communities, and all the children that inhabit them. America’s youth represent the future of our nation. It is up to us to equip them with financial knowledge, leadership skills, and a commitment to serve others, that will remain with them into their futures.
Cardinal Credit Union has been actively involved in Financial Literacy Education with children of all ages, since its inception, in 1953. In many instances, Cardinal has been the driving force on behalf of children in our communities. Seven years ago, Cardinal established one of the first student-run branches in Northern Ohio on the campus of Lake Catholic High School. This partnership is providing a disciplined financial literacy program designed to develop responsible money management skills in high school – a far better approach than learning the hard way by making costly financial mistakes in the real world of college and young adulthood. Our intent is to immerse students in a “culture of thrift,” by putting sound money-management skills into practice as they learn by doing in a controlled environment. Since 2012, Cardinal has expanded its Student Branch initiative to include 5 branches serving Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin, Hiram College, Northern Career Institute in Eastlake, and Lakeland Community College.
