Teens: Learn about money on Youth Advisory Board

Hey teens! Would you like to get an inside look at how credit unions work while getting a chance to earn a $1,000 scholarship at the same time? We’re looking for teens age 15-17 to serve on the Family Trust Youth Advisory Board. Service will begin in October, and board members can serve up to 3 years. You’ll meet students from throughout York County and add valuable experience to your resume.

The board, established in 2008, helps Family Trust know what young people want and need and develop strategies to reach them. The teens also learn about credit unions and how to make good spending decisions. Seniors who complete a project can compete for a $1,000 scholarship.

Meetings are held once a month at the Family Trust Operations Center in Rock Hill. The year starts with an orientation session and builds from there. Last year’s group conducted a project that taught kids at the Boys and Girls Clubs of York County all about money.

Applicants must be 15-17 years old and attend a York County high school. Click here to apply. The deadline is Sept. 14.
