Overview & Background
The need to educate youth about financial matters and support them in developing
healthy financial habits is an extremely important effort. Therefore, schools
are becoming more involved in teaching financial issues to students by including
materials and hands-on activities into their curriculums.
WESTconsin Credit Union also recognizes the significance of this need and
chooses to be part of a proactive solution by partnering with area school
districts to help educate more than 40,000 students on financial matters and the
cooperative difference. WESTconsin is currently active in more than 30 schools
throughout western Wisconsin, enhancing classroom activities with free financial
literacy programs and services. For the past 20 years, WESTconsin has partnered
with schools on this effort.
