Why the bear cub, eagle and wolf?

SASSY is divided into 3 age groups: Discoverers, Explorers and Soarers.

- The Discoverers are the bear cubs, kids from 5 - 8 that are just starting to discover the principles of money.
- The Explorers are the active wolves, youth from 9 - 12 who are ready to start asking more questions and run with learning on their own.
- The Soarers are young eagles, representing teens from 13 - 17, taking flight into adulthood and their financial future. We want to them to have confidence, education and tools about how to handle money responsibly in adulthood.

SASSY provides age appropriate financial education games and activities for each age group, supporting the important journey we all take of learning how to manage money effectively.

What does it mean to be a SASSY member?

To qualify as a member of SASSY, you must be 17 years old or younger, and open a savings account at Spirit of Alaska FCU.
