One of the missions of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) is to teach financial literacy to as many people as possible. Financial literacy empowers people with the information they need, providing answers to every day questions, including:
Identity theft solutions
Marriage and merging finances
Dealing with credit card debt
By using programs like the National Endowment for Financial Education's High School Financial Planning Program, career fairs, seminars and workshops, LSCU brings easily understandable, free financial education to teachers, students and adults across the Southeast. For information on bringing financial literacy training to your credit union, contact the
Cooperative Initiatives department.
