Unite for Good Ad

Wisconsin credit unions drive youth financial education by supervising almost 100 fully functioning credit unions run by students inside schools and youth centers in Wisconsin and neighboring states. Their purpose is to teach young people a regular habit of saving. 

The branches have been applauded as a best practice for financial education not only because they have been proven effective, but because they help advance standards for financial education at no cost to schools or taxpayers. Credit unions helped enact state law requiring students to learn basic competencies in personal finance.

As institutions owned by all members instead of a small group of investors, credit unions offer programs like this as a way of returning their earnings to the members and communities they serve.
