Introduction to Banking

Students in their Junior or Senior year are eligible to enroll in the Intro to Banking class taught by Mrs. Meier.

In order to enroll, students must go through an application and interview process. If selected for the Intro to 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 Introduction to 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 2019 and may have the opportunity to work part-time at one of our ten branches. 

 Students will:
  • 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
  • Attend marketing events and gain experience working with potential members
  • Have the opportunity to earn money by working at a Christian Financial branch
  • 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.
