With Greenlight as a partner, credit unions can provide a robust digital banking experience for kids and teens. Greenlight offers a debit card for kids and teens and money app designed for families loved by over 6 million parents and kids. With Greenlight, parents can teach their kids about responsible money management with all the tools to ensure improved financial wellness.

Greenlight’s debit card for kids and teens allows parents to set customizable spending controls and have full transparency into their kid’s spending habits. Parents can also load up the debit card instantly, or empower their kids to earn money through chores and automated allowance. Greenlight’s app also helps parents teach the value of savings with the ability for their kids to set customizable savings goals in their app. Finally, with Greenlight’s “Level Up” game, kids can cruise through bite-sized interactive lessons on everything from smart spending to investing.
