On Monday, March 2, Vibe Credit Union’s Financial Education Specialist, Terri Buckner, taught a Financial Literacy workshop for students in Catholic Central’s Marketing and Business class.
Vibe has been providing financial education workshops since 2007 to prepare young adults for effective decision making when faced with financial choices. The workshop topics included budgeting, installment vs. revolving debt, and how to maintain a good credit score.
“The workshop focused on teaching good financial habits,” said Buckner. “We emphasized that staying within your budget and living within your means will lead to financial success. We also discussed how online bill pay helps maintain a good credit score, setting young people up for better interest rates on home loans or business loans.”
Vibe’s President/CEO, Allan McMorris, is very proud of Vibe’s financial literacy programs. “I believe we have a responsibility to invest in our youth and provide the tools they need to be financially successful adults,” he said.
Vibe Credit Union is one of the largest credit unions in Michigan. It is a full-service financial institution with 66,000 members headquartered in Novi since 2003. Vibe gives back to the community through sponsorships, donations, and financial education.
