National Credit Union Youth Month

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, Dade County Federal 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.  

We at DCFCU have come up with some great ways to help our youth save and win prizes!


This month we will have the following Savings Contests available:
