“When the kids visit, they are experiencing a vibrant environment where they can have fun, ask questions, and interact with Credit Union employees. This helps kids feel more at ease later when talking about their finances or using their accounts. Similarly, we are creating a trusting environment for parents. Kids can have fun with finances, and we are happy to show that to them.”— Lisa, Credit Union Employee
