Celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month with HFS; April 1-30, 2018!
When we find ourselves with extra cash, many of us rush out to buy those shoes or new gadgets we’ve had our eyes on for months, instead of putting it toward our savings. Why do we do that? We can blame it on our brain. Behavioral science shows that humans are hard-wired to act on impulse and it takes conscious thought to delay gratification. Here at HFS, we want to help you teach your children to learn good financial habits. Take a look at the info graphic below with tips on how you can teach your kids good saving habits!
Don’t forget to also utilize tools like Banzai! Beginning this April HFS Federal Credit Union has made the award-winning program FREE for children and teens! Banzai is an online financial literary tool that allows kids to learn by helping them choose their own adventure and discover real-world finances and pitfalls.
Jumpstart conversations and healthy attitudes about finances at home and choose from two courses: Banzai Junior (ages 8-12) or Banzai Teen (13-18). You can sign up your kids for free by going to hfsfcu.learnbanzai.com and creating an account!
We encourage you to bring your keiki (ages 17 and under) to make a deposit at any of our branches during the month of April to receive a special gift!* They will also be entered into the National Youth Savings Challenge to win $1,000 and the HFS Youth Month Drawing! Five youth members from the HFS Youth Month Drawing will win a set of (4) Imiloa one-day general admission tickets for the Planetarium and Exhibit Hall (no expiration date, can be used any time for regularly schedules shows).**
As an added bonus, all keiki who complete their age appropriate Banzai course can bring in their certificate of completion to any HFS branch to redeem for a Regal Cinemas movie pass during the month of April!***
*Gift is available to all youth ages 17 and under who make a deposit at the Credit Union between April 1, 2018 – April 30, 2018, while supplies last. **All youth ages 17 and under who make a deposit at the Credit Union between April 1, 2018 – April 30, 2018 will be automatically entered into the National Youth Savings ChallengeTM and the HFS Youth Month Drawing.
