"ACFCU’s In-School Branch Program provides area students with real world, financial literacy education and the opportunity to explore future employment options. ACFCU currently has In-School branches in 3 high schools and 2 elementary schools [and now, 1 middle school!]. Volunteer employees teach participating students how to perform Credit Union duties, including accepting membership applications, processing deposits and handling withdrawals . . . For more information on In-School branches, please call (703) 526-0200."
We are very excited to be the first middle school in Arlington to host a branch of the Arlington Community Federal Credit Union and see this as a great way to start our students on the road to becoming effective managers of their own finances.
