How Are We “Empowering You”?
Keep reading and see how we’re involved in many eye-opening initiatives that educate and inspire members.
Unison is committed to financial education. We promote positive financial habits in the lives of students from an early age. Our classroom presentations are designed to be grade specific and cover topics such as saving, budgeting, and ways to avoid making poor financial decisions pain. Plus, we share information on accounts, loans, and other products and services that help students gain the knowledge they need to stay on the path to a bright financial future.
During the the Classroom Credit Union program, second graders learn about financial concepts that relate to topics they have previously touched on in their social studies and math lessons. Over a 5-month period, we visit classrooms to conduct hands-on activities with students. At the end, students are rewarded with the special opportunity to open their own savings account – with Unison providing the first deposit!
Each spring, Unison sponsors the Kaukauna High School Reality Store and the Little Chute High School Reality Check. These are simulation games in which students are assigned a career, marital status, and family size. They are given a mock checkbook with the monthly income entered for their specific career. Students then visit booths manned by community members at which they pay their monthly bills. At each booth, students make decisions concerning a standard of living they’ll assume. Following the event, students discuss the impact of the educational choices they make today on their ability to enter various occupations and support their future desired standard of living.
The Unison Credit Union Smart Option Student Loan® by Sallie Mae® is an ideal solution to help bridge the gap between federal loans and the cost of your education expenses. It offers competitive fixed interest rates in addition to our low variable interest rates, providing even more choice and flexibility.
