Meriwest Credit Union believes everyone should have access to personal financial education. It does not matter whether you are a youth or a senior citizen; the need for financial education spans all age groups.
Young people need to learn about budgeting and how to best handle a checking account. Later in life, we need to learn how to purchase a home or how to protect our identities in public and on the internet. As we grow even older, we need to know how to protect our retirement nest eggs and prepare our estates to help our children and grandchildren.
Improve your financial future by gaining a better understanding of a broad range of personal finance topics. The tools & tips we are providing will help you build strong money management skills that will serve you today and for years to come.
Meriwest Credit Union is here to help empower educators by providing free access to a diverse range of financial literacy resources. Our resources include free financial literacy presentations for classroom use and online video tutorials. It is our hope these resources will provide students the tools necessary for financial success.
Incorporating money lessons into your classroom is an important addition to a student’s educational experience. Whether you’re introducing this topic to your students for the first time or you want to reinforce what you’re currently doing, our resources offer a wide array of topics.
Meriwest is now partnering with EverFi™ to bring financial literacy education to local elementary and high school students by providing them with no-cost access to the EverFi™ Financial Literacy/ Vault™ – Understanding Money learning platform.
This web-based program uses the latest in new media technology – simulations, avatars, gaming and adaptive-pathing – to bring complex financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation. Through this platform, students will become certified in hundreds of topics in personal finance, allowing them to become more informed, responsible citizens. Meriwest has partnered with EverFi, Inc. to bring the interactive financial management program to these elementary and high school students at no cost to the school(s).
