Teaching Financial Success at our Local Schools

Credit unions are built by members, for members. And we believe that extends to our youngest members. 

As evidence of this philosophy in action, we are proud to sponsor five student-run branches within the Coppell Independent School District. With the help of teachers and parent volunteers, students from multiple classes apply for and staff each of the five branches. 

These branches operate just like a regular Credit Union branch with students serving as the employees. Students must apply and interview for their positions giving them additional life skills necessary for adulthood.The primary goal of these special branches is to help kids get in the habit of saving money. But through these branches, kids are also learning important counting and money management skills, too.

Las Colinas Credit Union Student-Run Branches include: 

Valley Ranch Elementary since 2004 

Austin Elementary since 2006 

Mockingbird Elementary since 2009 

Pinkerton Elementary since 2010 

Lee Elementary since 2014
