Youth Savings Tips and Activities

Ask your parents to help you open your own Savings Account at Delta Community Credit Union. Keep track of how much money you put in and take out. That way you can see how close you are to meeting your savings goal.

  • As you earn money doing chores or babysitting, deposit the money into your Delta Community Savings Account! Watch your savings grow until you have saved enough for the gaming console, sports tickets or any awesome experience you have had your eye on.
  • Participate in a Cool Cash Middle School Summer Camp hosted by our Financial Education Center.

Young Adults

  • Consider taking on a part-time job. Earning your own money can help you save for big goals, like car or college expenses.
  • Open a Checking Account at Delta Community. Learn how to use a debit card responsibly and track transactions. Those skills will come in handy now and in your financial future.
  • Delta Community Credit Union awards scholarships to high school and college students annually. For more information regarding scholarship amounts and application dates, visit

  • Set reasonable goals.
  • Save first, not last. As soon as you get your paycheck, your birthday money or your allowance, put part of it away in savings.
  • Track your spending and your savings. People who track their spending soon find they spend less and save more.
  • Be a bargain hunter. When you do spend money, make sure you check for the best bargain. Watch the price tags, not the brand names at the store.
  • Ask questions! If you have questions about money or saving, ask the professionals at the Delta Community. We’re ready to help you.
