Student Credit Union

Alternatives operates eleven in-school credit union branches where students from elementary to high school can learn the value of a savings habit.

“I am glad I have a savings account and I think other kids my age should have one so that whenever they need it, the money will be there.”

Learn to save

Since 1990, Alternatives' Student Credit Union has provided financial education, financial services, and the opportunity for youth to manage their own money.
