Students learn and help by volunteering their time

Student-CURockford Community Federal Credit Union just finished their 10th year of facilitating Student Run Credit Unions in the Rockford area schools. We would like to say thank you to all the 2012-2013 volunteer Student Run Credit Union employees. The 28 student employees helped their peers save over $4,250.00 by processing over 530 transactions!

We would like to thank Belmont Elementary, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Our Lady of Consolation Schools for participating this year. Rockford Community Federal Credit Union enjoys partnering with the local schools to help students achieve financial literacy. “I enjoy helping students understand more about the importance of saving and budgeting their money; they don’t always need to spend, spend, spend!” said Josh Fortuna, Student Run Credit Union facilitator. A program like the Student Run Credit Union gives students the real life skills of financial banking in a safe and secure school environment.
