Updates to program for Fall of 2013!
Credit unions will have a chance to put their own mark
on the brass|STUDENT PROGRAM with upcoming changes to the fall
distribution and classroom sets.
In an effort to build new CU-school relationships and reinforce existing
ones, the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation and brass
invite credit unions to help sponsor resources for the high
schools in your area through two new mini-package options. These options
represent a simple, cost-effective way to engage local
high classrooms and provide expanded content on behalf of a sponsorship from your credit union.
Please see our FAQs for complete details about how the program
is changing for the 2013-2014 school year.
The brass|STUDENT PROGRAM is a free classroom resource
teachers can use to teach students about the money side of life™.
Through the Program, teachers receive a package of materials four times
per year, which includes magazines, workbooks and DVD lessons,
in addition to online resources.
Wisconsin credit unions - through the The Wisconsin Credit Union
Foundation - provide the brass|STUDENT PROGRAM at no
cost to Wisconsin public high school teachers. Currently, more
than 390 Wisconsin teachers at more than 290 schools are
registered for the Student Program. All teachers are able
to register for free online for access to Student
Brass Magazine and its accompanying resources are designed to teach
high school students about the money side of life™. Read by
thousands of young adults across the nation, brass content is written
for young adults by young adults and in a recent Student Program
survey, 100% of teachers indicated that they would recommend the
Student Program to a colleague.
