MEDFORD, Ore. – Rogue Federal Credit Union is hoping to set kids and teens here on the right financial path with the launch of its new youth programs. The new programs targeting young members from birth to the age of 18 are designed to help them better understand personal finance through educational and saving opportunities. “If we can help our members to better understand money and finances now, they will be a lot better off in the future,” said Rogue FCU CEO Tim Alford. “We’re committed to help our teen members get a head start on their finances.” In addition to expanding its existing Kitty Club Program offerings to include deposit incentives and contests, Rogue FCU has unveiled CU Succeed Middle School for those age 12-14. The program offers a savings account, ATM card, CU Succeed newsletter, an interactive Web site just for teens, and deposit incentives. CU Succeed High School members ages 15-18 years of age are eligible for a free checking account, debit card, credit card, CU Succeed newsletter, Web site just for teens, deposit incentives and an educational seminar program. The CU Succeed Seminar Program is a series of four financial classes each lasting two hours. Topics range from checking account basics and electronic services, to budgeting and understanding credit and credit reports. The first series was held during the month of April and so far the response has been positive with a full first class of 20 students and numerous sign-ups slated for the July and August sessions.
