Financial Education

Providing credit union members with financial education is one of the core purposes of our cooperative movement.  MCUL & Affiliates strives to empower credit unions with ideas, opportunities, resources and support for high quality financial education activities that positively impact their members and communities.  Below you will find tools, turnkey resources, information and inspiration for many ways to provide impactful financial education; from seminars, community events and school presentations to website resources and member products and services. 



Career and Technical Training
For Skilled Trade Occupations in Michigan

Michigan has a skills gap – too few workers for skilled occupations like welding, pharmacy technicians and computer network support specialists. MCUL has created new materials to address Michigan’s skills gap for use by credit unions, schools, parents and others who are interested in helping our youth and building Michigan’s workforce.
