COMMUNITY INITIATIVES


Student Credit Union

REGIONAL believes that the best time to learn financial responsibility is while young. REGIONAL operates ten in-school Student Credit Union branches to help young people learn vital money-management skills, while also giving them a convenient way to deposit and withdraw from their savings accounts right at school. We encourage student members to deposit regularly, even in small amounts, and to set short and long-term savings goals.

Student Credit Union branches are staffed by student-members from each school; student team members gain experience with cash handling, professionalism and confidentiality. Student members age 16 and older may open a Free Checking account with a Visa™ Debit Card, and direct deposit is available for those whose employers offer this benefit.


Next Generation Scholarship

The Next Generation Scholarship consists of two $500 scholarship awarded annually to two high school seniors chosen by REGIONAL. Entrants must be attending college or a trade school after graduation, and must submit a short essay on a topic chosen by the credit union.
