The Independent Advantage program is a series of financial courses available to high school students. In a relaxed and fun environment, students learn about checking accounts, electronic access, credit, and budgeting.
Upon completion of the courses series students receive:
Each course consists of four sessions spread over the course of four weeks. You can choose between in-person sessions at our Burbank branch* or virtual sessions over Zoom. Please do not sign up for both in-person and virtual sessions for the same month as the same content will be covered in both venues.
*In-person courses are subject to CDC guidelines. If necessary, these courses may be rescheduled to meet virtually. **In-person classes will be taught at our Burbank branch
Classes are free. Students must open a savings account with the Credit Union before the first course.
