BACK TO SCHOOL: FINANCIAL LITERACY FOR STUDENTS

 We often hear our members say that teaching children to manage their money helps them learn to be responsible. Experts also claim that financial literacy can help foster a financially responsible community, and in turn, may help prevent future economic recessions. 

Because financial literacy is important to our community, Community Financial Credit Union has partnered with local schools to create a variety of programs that we offer specifically for youths.


Our Youth Services include:

1.  Free savings accounts with no minimum balance requirements

2.  Special rewards for deposits

3.  Easy access to our School Credit Union Program 

Our “School Student Run Credit Union” program exposes thousands of students to money management skills. Students learn the credit union business by participating as tellers, branch managers, marketing representatives, computer operators, and bookkeepers.

Community Financial also works to bring Junior Achievement concepts to local elementary classrooms, teaching students age-appropriate banking concepts.

At Community Financial, we know that education is important. Helping establish financial literacy programs in schools will teach students important money management skills that they will carry with them as adults. If your school is interested in joining our program, please contact Natalie McLaughlin at 877-937-2328 or stop by any of our eight convenient locations.
