Youth & Students
Student Run Credit Union Program
SCCU believes that financial literacy and money management are important life skills that all children need to know. Youth Services are for members from birth to age 18 and offers exclusive savings programs designed with our growing members in mind.
SCCU is proud to partner with Michigan schools districts to help operate student-run school credit unions and expose students to money management skills. Selected students learn the banking business as credit union tellers, branch managers, marketing representatives, computer operators and bookkeepers.
Year after year our program grows stronger. The credit union now operates 8 student-run credit unions, impacting more than 2000 elementary, middle, and high school students.
