The $1.9 billion, 150,800-member NEFCU in Westbury, N.Y., has launched a new website aimed at helping young adults manage their financial futures.
CUShine will work in partnership with students from Frank G. Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University to create and offer content from the Gen Y perspective for 18- to 26-year-olds, the Long Island credit union said.
“This website is the latest addition to our financial literacy outreach program and we hope it will be a valuable resource to help young adults manage their personal finances when heading off to college and/or entering the workplace,” said Valerie Garguilo, vice president of marketing and community relations at NEFCU.
The students will blog and create videocasts about relevant issues for young adults, who are starting their careers, working towards a degree and becoming financially independent, NEFCU said. Topics will include money and lifestyle management, job searching and education.
