#8 - Making Financial Education Exciting with "Ales & Assets" and "Speed Savings"
3 days ago
In this podcast, we talk about breaking the stereotype of financial education as "boring" and making credit unions' offerings more exciting.
Many credit unions are doing really engaging activities in this area, but two stuck out immediately, which are the focus of today’s podcast. First, we talk with Audrey Stone from Sunmark FCU in New York, where they offer an award-winning financial education event entitled “Speed Savings”. Speed Savings is a unique event designed to help save members money in multiple areas of their life – all in one place for one hour. Sunmark’s Speed Savings event shows members ways to save while sitting down with four different finance experts.
Then we’ll hear from Rebecca Grizzle and Kathleen Burt from Linn-Co FCU in Oregon to talk about “Ales & Assets,” a new education series where the credit union partnered with a local brewpub to offer people free beer and financial knowledge.
