In-School Credit Union Branches

Why have an in-school credit union?

The purpose of an in-school credit union branch program is to assist young people in the development of personal finance and employability skills.

What is an in-school credit union?

Often referred to as a student credit union or student-run credit union, in-school credit unions are established as a financial education partnership between a credit union and a school or school district. While the scope and operation often vary depending on needs and resources, facilitating in-school branches gives students the opportunity to learn money management skills as they make account transactions at school, often coupled with additional financial education. Most in-school credit unions are also student-run, providing an additional benefit of developing career, math and organizational skills to the students involved in the operation of the branch.
