Alternatives youth accounts can be opened online by clicking the button above, or in person at any of our school branches or our main branch.

Youth Accounts have a membership fee of $2 with a required initial deposit of $1. For students whose parent/guardian or joint signer is already a member of Alternatives, the membership fee is waived. Opening a youth account makes the account holder a member-owner of the credit union and eligible to cast a vote in our Board elections. When a youth account holder turns 19, their account automatically graduates into a regular membership account.

Programs like Mad City Money® or the Bill Myers Youth Internship do not require membership, and we hope that the lessons learned from those experiences will encourage young people to join our SCU.
