What better way to teach students about financial literacy, customer service, and management than let them do it themselves? That’s exactly what our partnership with LOC Federal Credit Union does.
For more than a decade, our students have managed and staffed full-service branches in many schools, supervised by an LOC employee. Students serve actual customers as tellers, customer service professionals, and in other roles. In the process, students improve math skills, develop lifelong saving habits, and learn how to work in teams and communicate effectively about business issues.
Our goal is to have a student-run branch in all schools by 2018—an accomplishment that wouldn’t be possible without LOC’s commitment to our students.
