We are excited to announce the return of our Student-Run Credit Union! As we gear up for our 9th year running the program, we invite you to visit our Facebook page for updates and upcoming deposit days. We look forward to continuing financial education throughout the school year!
About the SRCU Program:
The Student-Run Credit Union program is free and available to any school within 25 miles of TBACU. Credit union staff members help students operate their own school credit union branches:
- providing financial education to students,
- encouraging personal financial responsibility,
- increasing student confidence,
- developing responsibility and leadership skills,
- promoting practical math applications and
- cultivating career awareness and employ-ability skills.
In 2010, TBA Credit Union launched a unique program designed to encourage fiscal responsibility and leadership skills among area youth. Student-Run Credit Unions were introduced in four local schools that year in November and now fifteen operating branches exist throughout the five-county area. During the 2017-18 school year, 149 student volunteers processed 777 transactions, helping peers from their schools save $10,048.02. The Student-Run Credit Union Program can operate in any school at no cost to participating districts.
