We are committed to promoting financial awareness to set the next generation up for financial success! Below are a few ways we are partnering to do just that.
Here at Daviess County Teachers Federal Credit Union, we value our younger members and hope to encourage each one to appreciate the advantages of having a credit union membership.
As a proud partner with BANZAI Financial Curriculum. We currently sponsor a number of area schools and provide them with FREE financial literacy materials. Banzai is an award-winning financial literacy curriculum that fulfills many state mandated requirements for personal finance and financial literacy. The printed and online interactive materials allow students to learn how to manage money in real life scenarios using up to date financial products. The best perk is that Banzai does the grading for you and there is virtually no prep time. These materials are available to all area teachers who may be interested!
