At Acadia Federal Credit Union, we believe that smart financial habits can never start to early. Not only do we offer a youth account to teach children the importance of saving, but we also have online games and activities to promote financial education at home and in school. Our comprehensive Financial Literacy Program, which has been introduced to school districts all over the St. John Valley was awarded first place in the state of Maine by the Maine Credit Union League and second place in the nation by the Creidt Union National Association. Take a minute and check out how we can help your kids plan for their own financially secure future!

When kids play MoneyIsland, they 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.

MoneyIsland provides invaluable life lessons that better prepare future generations. Aligned with national standards published by the Jump$tart Coalition® for Personal Financial Literacy, the MoneyIsland curriculum builds skills in three basic areas: Saving & Spending, Earning & Investing, and Using Credit Wisely.

Children who play MoneyIsland might not realize today how critical the lessons they're learning are, but they will as adults.
