CU Youth Connection

Young Adult Advisory Panel

Each year, young adults like yourself volunteer on our Young Adult Advisory Panel (YAAP). These young credit union ambassadors engage in monthly meetings where they meet with department managers to learn about our products, services and community commitment. They also collaborate on ideas for innovative products and services that appeal to your generation. ​Check out their YouTube video below!

Just a few of the great opportunities for our youth volunteers:

  • Get the knowledge and experience to make smart money choices now and in the future
  • Gain unique professional experience valued by future employers
  • Learn about the philosophies guiding credit unions
  • Develop ideas/program to inspire your peers to make smarter financial decisions
