Boulder Valley CU offers several youth programs and products geared towards our younger members. They were created to both educate and help parents educate their children about how to manage their finances prior to high school graduation.
Youth Savings Accounts
Choose an account that fits your age
The Rags to Riches Savings Club is designed for children 13 and under in order to provide the practical knowledge and hands-on experience of saving and money management with parent involvement. For every $5.00 that is deposited into the account, one (1) Bone Buck is received which can be saved and redeemed for great prizes displayed at our Boulder Valley CU branch locations.
Rags to Riches Story
RAGS is a loveable pup from the magical land of Riches Galore, who is always itching to spend his hard earned money. Along with all of the Rags to Riches Club members at BVCU, RAGS is learning the importance of saving and spending wisely.
Open an Account
Stop in at any of our branch locations to open your new Rags to Riches Club account and receive your account opening gift – a piggy bank! It only takes a few minutes to start on the path to good saving habits.
Our Young Educated Savers Club is designed for teens ages 14 to 17 in order to provide the practical knowledge and hands-on experience of saving and money management. BVCU offers the financial tools and opportunities that you're looking for, along with the information you need to build a strong foundation of financial independence.
In addition to opening a savings and checking account, you have access to auto loans for your first vehicle as well as Educational Student Credit Cards, so that you might begin to establish and learn about credit in a responsible manner with parental involvement.
At this age, our Student Credit Union program may also be available to you, click on Student Credit Unions for more information.
Youth Term Certificates of Deposit
We believe in helping our younger members to build good savings habits for the future, so we have created a special 12 month certificate just for our youth! With a low minimum balance of $100 and a great rate, this certificate will help you set aside money for your potential needs down the road.
Educational Student Credit Card
We all know that credit plays an important part in financing life. It's often used to purchase a car, pay for college, or buy a new home. And while such future concerns may seem a long way off, choices you make today can have a big impact on how successful you are tomorrow.
For this reason, Boulder Valley CU offers an Educational Student Credit Card. It's a great way to not only establish credit prior to going off to college, but to get a dose of credit education and understand the pitfalls of misuse. A great parental tool for teaching your teen, or learning yourself, about how to manage credit.
