Jeanne D’Arc CU

From left to right, Dracut High School seniors Christopher Digaetano, Kuzi Mvududu, Meghan Gedrich. Mackendra Looney, Ayiman Ata and Matthew Rossetti participate in Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union’s MoneyStrong for Life Fair. Approximately 60 volunteers, the majority of which were employees from the $1.3 billion, Lowell, Mass.-based Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union, helped manage the booths and assist more than 200 students in their decision-making process. The fair gave students insight into the types of financial decisions they will be responsible for in adulthood. Students chose their desired profession and were assigned a realistic income along with credit card debt, a savings account balance and student loan debt. Aspiring police officers, veterinarians, writers, choreographers, medical assistants and engineers moved from booth to booth making spending choices on life essentials while managing a budget based on their monthly income.
