Habits learned early in life are habits that usually help guide you all of your life. That’s why it’s important to instill smart financial behaviors in children. Our Financial Outreach Team is passionate about our school program and the students the program serves. We partner with schools in two ways:
The Y-12 FCU School Branch Program
This program allows students (middle school – high school) to learn how to bank and manage their own finances. From opportunities to volunteer and be a part of your school’s Y-12 FCU branch or by opening an account, we offer students more than a transaction; we offer students the foundation for a strong financial future.
The Y-12 FCU School Literacy Program
Through a strategic partnership with an organization called Everfi, we offer tailored curriculum for students of all ages or grade levels. Our approach is to make financial literacy fun! Our curriculum is interactive and allows students to experience aspects of finance like budgeting, saving, and spending in game-like scenarios.
