Student Credit Union
The Student Credit Union is a program to help young people learn financial education through credit union services. Student volunteers are trained as tellers and member service representatives to help their peers learn about saving and using financial products responsibly. Parents and teachers from local schools may get involved with their school’s credit union branch, or to start a new branch. An intern works with the director of the program to oversee branch operations and develop opportunities to expand membership and increase participation. This internship is an excellent opportunity to establish an innovative educational model in public schools.
