Valley Cares for Kids

Kids are in the prime years for learning new skills. We train them early in learning a second language, a musical instrument, or the fundamentals of a sport so they can carry and build upon these skills into adulthood. Shouldn’t we include financial training in early education; after all, it is something they’re going to have to face almost every day of their adult life. Valley Federal Credit Union thought the best way to introduce people to valuable financial education is with a fun online game, which is why they offer Money Island . As your kids enter a virtual world that not only makes learning fun, but also tracks and encourages their progress. As they go on quests to fantastic destinations like the Eiffel Tower and Atlantis, they learn real-life principles of financial responsibility. This program is designed to help parents and teachers participate in their children’s learning, offering lesson plans and sample activities that keep the learning going, even after the game is finished. A financially literate community benefits us all. #reboot #news #sponsored #valleyfcu
