April is National Credit Union Youth Month…
and Indianhead Credit Union wants to help your kids fulfill their big dreams.
Dreaming big doesn’t mean you need to start with big actions. The first small step is usually the hardest,
but once it’s taken, you can use momentum to propel you forward. This year’s theme for National
Credit Union Youth Month is “Save Small. Dream Big. at your credit union.” It uses the image of a
magical rainbow with a wish-fulfilling gold star at the end. We want to tell young members that their
dreams are attainable, no matter how big they are.
Indianhead Credit Union has tools to help fulfill these dreams. With a L.I.F.E. youth savings account
that earns compound interest, young members can deposit small amounts on a regular basis and
watch their savings grow “like magic.” The earlier they start a savings account, the more it will grow,
and the easier it will be to achieve their dreams. Learning this good financial habit at a young age
will set them up on the path of successful financial well-being.
If you have been wondering how to empower your kids to save for their future, National Credit Union
Youth Month is a great opportunity to start! Join us this April as credit unions across the country
encourage youth to start saving regularly. This celebration is a great time to engage kids at
Indianhead Credit Union and within your community to help them learn that saving, no matter how
small the amount, can help them achieve their dreams.

Introducing L.I.F.E. Stages at ICU!
(Learning Independence with Financial Education)
L.I.F.E. is more than just fun and games! Indianhead Credit Union is proud to introduce you to our L.I.F.E. Stages program. This program includes three club accounts for youth ages 0 – 17 and one club account for young adults ages 18 – 24. Best of all, each club requires just a $5.00 deposit and a few minutes of your time to set up, so stop in today and start enjoying L.I.F.E. with your friends at ICU!
A 1st Step in learning basic money management skills is opening a savings account. Several times throughout the year incentives and promotions are offered to help pre-schoolers (0 – 5) learn good savings habits.
Upon graduation from the 1st Step Club kids will LEAP into the next level. The Leap Club makes saving money fun, and helps kids aged 6 to 12 learn good money management skills with lots of special incentives along the way.
ICU’s next L.I.F.E. Club helps teens aged 13 to 17 experience financial independence and REACH their goals. The REACH Club offers savings, atm cards, checking accounts, debit cards, low minimum cd’s and even small loans (some restrictions may apply).
Suddenly you’re an adult. NOW what do you do? One of the biggest challenges is getting set up financially, and ICU’s NOW Club is ready to help with a wide array of services targeted to young adults aged 18 to 24. From savings to checking to special terms on loans, ICU’s NOW Club makes dollars and SENSE for young people establishing their credit and overall money habits.
