National Credit Union Youth Month

Every April, National Credit Union Youth Month serves to encourage kids to develop healthy saving habits by making savings fun and exciting. This campaign is our opportunity to engage with our young members and show them that ALPS is here to help them throughout their financial journey.

Follow us on Facebook for Youth Month updates in April.

Financial Education

Get REAL Financial Reality Fairs

ALPS participates in our area schools' Get REAL Financial Reality Fairs. The Financial Reality Fairs are designed to teach financial literacy to high school students. It is a fun, hands-on way for students and young adults to learn about managing personal finances. Community members assist students in making decisions about everyday expenses and provide financial advice to help them keep a budget.

For more information, if you'd like to bring the Fair to your school, or you're a community member that would like to volunteer at a fair, visit the Get REAL Financial Reality Fairs website.
