Hands-on experience for high school students
Teaching the ins and outs of credit union business
Life skills go a long way for the young people in our Hawaii Island communities. That's why we opened the state's first student credit union in 1972 at Konawaena High School. We now operate three to benefit our 'ohana's teenage members.

Golden opportunities for students
When students are engaged, communities grow stronger. We provide real-life work experience through student credit unions operated at Konawaena High School, Kealakehe High School, Kohala High School and Hilo High School. These branches are run by students and available only to students, but they're all members of the larger Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union 'ohana.
These branches promote financial literacy within each school, and each has an operating board of directors and tellers who help students deposit and withdraw money, open checking and savings accounts, and invest in share certificates. It's another way we're helping to position younger generations for future success.
