The Award Winning Financial Education Program that turns learning into reality.
Spending money has never been easier than it is for today's youth.
More credit is being extended to this segment at a younger and younger age. Yet, far too few students learn life skills that will ultimately lead to their personal financial success. Especially during these challenging economic times, it's even more important to educate our youth about their finances.
A coalition of credit unions, through America's Credit Union Museum's Financial Literacy Education Committee, has designed the first-ever, hands-on, comprehensive training package, CU 4 Reality,™ centered on the dynamic interaction between students, educators, parents, credit unions and business volunteers. Aligned with state and Jump$tart Coalition’s National Standards in Personal Finance Education, the CU 4 Reality™ program turns learning into reality.
