Financial Education

From our in school financial education to our adult financial education initiatives, we're working to educate everyone in our communities! 

A lot of our educational programs are open to both our members and the public. We've started In School Branches at multiple schools to help educate kids on depositing and saving money, as well as the credit union difference. We also do financial education seminars at schools by request. The goal of all of our financial education initiatives is to encourage a general understanding of saving, spending, borrowing, credit scores, and the difference between credit unions and banks. We are laying the foundation for a lifetime of healthy financial habits! Our adult financial education initiatives teach people about specific aspects of their finances or help them plan ahead for the future. 

For more information about our financial education programs, please contact Lauren Polen.
