Financial Education

One of the missions of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) is to teach financial literacy to as many people as possible. Financial literacy empowers people with the information they need, providing answers to every day questions, including:

  • Money management
  • Credit basics
  • Financial goals
  • Retirement planning
  • Identity theft solutions
  • Marriage and merging finances
  • Dealing with credit card debt

By using programs like the National Endowment for Financial Education's High School Financial Planning Program, career fairs, seminars and workshops, LSCU brings easily understandable, free financial education to teachers, students and adults across the Southeast. For information on bringing financial literacy training to your credit union, contact the Cooperative Initiatives department.

Does your credit union offer financial literacy programs?

Be sure to report your financial presentations to youth, ages birth through twenty-two, to the National Youth Involvement Board. Register for free at the NYIB website where you will be able to join a listserv network of more than 400 credit union professionals, have access to free resources, and report your presentations. The data collected is used by credit unions, leagues, and foundations to show the difference that credit unions are making within the communities in which they serve.
