Florida Credit Union Expands to 13 School Branches
The VyStar High School Credit Union Branch Program allows student managers to experience the inner workings of key financial services, like loans, credit cards, budgets and investment accounts. Not only do these students learn the importance of credit, how to properly use credit and how to save money, but they also serve as peer mentors, sharing the important lessons they learn with their fellow students.
In 2016, VyStar reached 2,717 students with their financial training programs and almost 20,000 students since 2012. This highly successful financial literacy and career training program continues to expand with a strategic goal of opening up to two new high school branches per year. Two more high school branches, our 12th and 13th, are planned for the 2017-2018 school year in Jacksonville, FL.
