April is Youth Month!
The theme this year is "The Science of Saving," showcasing fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. If your child does not have a savings account with PALCO now is a great time to open one up and help them learn about saving money. For children 0-12 we offer the Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club, and kids 13+ we have a lot of informative finanical info. with our Claim Your Youth program and website.
This year we are giving away two (2) Wiggy piggy banks as well as a $50 Visa gift card! Along with our giveaways, PALCO will also be participating in the National Youth Savings Challenge, giving all members under the age of 18 a chance to win $100!
