TBA Credit Union's Student-Run Credit Union Saves Students Nearly $2K

TBA Credit Union wrapped up the 2022-2023 Student-Run Credit Union (SRCU) program and helped students save over $1,622.00. This year marks the return of TBA's SRCU program since it was put on hold for three years due to the pandemic.

During the 2018-2019 school year, TBA Credit Union introduced a traveling trophy that was awarded to the school with the highest percentage of participation from TBA Credit Union student account holders. This year, the trophy was awarded to The Pathfinder School.

TBA's SRCU program is designed to encourage lifelong savings habits and provide first-time job experience to students in the 4th or 5th grade. Student volunteers apply and interview for their desired credit union position, then run an SRCU branch at their school. Student members can deposit money into their TBACU youth account or apply for membership without having to come into a branch.

“Working with these students through our Student-Run Credit program was incredibly rewarding,” said Marketing Specialist Sawyer Bak. “They are eager to learn about finances and really enjoy the idea of having their 'first job' alongside their fellow classmates. This school year was a great success, and we are very excited to continue to expand our reach in the fall.”
