Learning good money management is something that can start early in life.
Just like learning to ride a bike, with practice and experience a child can learn how to save and spend responsibly.
ERCU Youth Accounts provide a great opportunity to start teaching your child about money management. They can watch their savings grow - make deposits to it from change they collect or money they earn; understand what "interest" is, and how it is applied to their account; and see what happens when you make withdrawals for expenses.
Youth accounts are also great for parents who want to provide their children with the financial means to complete post-secondary education.
