ALEXANDRIA, Va. - April 8, 2013 - PRLog -- A unique new program which teaches youth valuable financial education lessons on a multi-media platform launched this month at CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union.

Suzie Cook, Vice President – Marketing & Business Development, stated, “The CENTSABLES program reinforces our commitment to be our members’ lifetime financial partner and this partnership begins when they are young.  The characters grab and keep the attention of today’s youth while also appealing to their parents for the educational and positive messages they deliver.”

The CENTSABLES combine entertainment with education through a savings program for youth, an interactive website with a parent section (offered in Spanish too), comic book series, and free teacher lesson plans with student activity pages focusing on math skills. The concepts of money, how value is determined, basic economics, and investing are explored on an age-appropriate level for 6-11 year-olds.

The CENTSABLES are six super-hero friends who through their everyday adventures and examples teach sound money concepts and positive behavior. When the youth of “Centsinnati” are threatened by villains like Creditor and Liquidator, the CENTSABLES leap into action.  

“We are excited to offer this program. It supports our efforts to teach younger members their first lessons about money in a fun environment. We see it as the foundation on which to build their financial education throughout their lives,” concluded Cook.
