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!
