WELCOME TO THE UNION AT DE LA SALLE COLLEGIATE
Christian Financial Credit Union has partnered with De La Salle Collegiate to give students the opportunity to learn first-hand about the world of banking and aid students in making wise financial choices.
By becoming a member, you become a part owner of the credit union! Unlike account-holders at banks, credit union members own the credit union and have the opportunity to voice their opinions in the decision-making process. Profits that Christian Financial earns go back to members as lower rates on loans and higher interest rates on savings accounts.
De La Salle Collegiate students in their junior or senior year are eligible to enroll in the Honors Banking class taught by Mrs. Meier.
In order to enroll, students must go through an application and interview process. If selected for the Honors Banking class, students will become employees of Christian Financial Credit Union and go through a mandatory training process during the summer before school starts.
Class curriculum covers banking basics from account types, to more thorough details on how the Federal Reserve works, and even in-depth investment information from experts.
GET AHEAD OF THE REST
During the Honors Banking class, students will receive real work experience, as well as resume-building skills and a part-time job. Students will begin in the summer of 2020 and may have the opportunity to work part-time at one of our ten branches.
Build their resume through real work experience and leadership opportunities
Learn fundamental banking concepts and principles
Acquire skills by working with real-life customers and understanding how credit unions build relationships with their members
Attend a two-week training that will teach them financial concepts, marketing, how to make deposits and payments and the future of technology in the banking industry

Take on responsibility as an employee at "The Union," the CFCU branch at De La Salle (students will spend school time working in various roles at the branch)
It is important to realize that students will be required to report to training at a designated Christian Financial branch for two weeks in the summer - this training is mandatory regardless of whether or not the student wished to work as a teller.
