The National Youth Involvement Board, NYIB, has changed its name to Credit Union Financial Education Network, CUFEN. The name change comes as more and more credit unions offer financial education not only to students, but to adults as well.

CUFEN’s mission is to equip the credit union industry to provide financial education opportunities for all ages. Membership for CUFEN is free and open to all credit unions in the US. As a nonprofit organization, CUFEN is dedicated to being a financial education resource while remaining devoted to helping share the credit union difference.

The history of the organization dates back to 1972 when the first executive committee was formed. At that time, credit unions were concerned about the perception and acceptance of credit unions among younger generations. By 1977, the focus for the group was on reducing the average age of credit union members and increasing membership for those under the age of 18. Over time, the group continued to grow and expanded its focus to student education, school branches and providing annual education statistics to credit union leagues and organizations across the country.
