Suncoast Schools FCU claiming youth

Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union has opened four new middle and elementary Imagein-school branches and welcomed more than 300 new youth members to its growing family!

Since technology has drastically changed the way students learn, we made it our highest priority to include technology-based incentive programs throughout the openings of our new student-run branches. At each branch opening, student names were entered
into a raffle to win a Kindle Fire and for every new account that was opened, the student automatically received a $5 cash deposit into his/her savings account.

• Since grand opening on September 26, 2012 at Fishhawk Creek Elementary School in Lithia, Florida, 206 students opened accounts and deposited $15,372.
• Since grand opening on October 31, 2012 at Pine Ridge Middle School in Naples, Florida, 90 students opened accounts and deposited $9,512.
• Since grand opening on February 20, 2013 West Glades K-8  in LaBelle, Florida, 16 students opened accounts and deposited $1,045.

It’s incredible to see our new youth members set financial and personal goals at the student-run branches. They have the opportunity to hold leadership positions and serve as branch tellers, all while learning how to work with others and achieve a common
goal – SAVE MONEY!
