In response to COVID-19 shutdowns and school closures, a credit union youth financial education program is going remote. The Richard Myles Johnson (RMJ) Foundation, a state foundation for credit unions in California and Nevada, announced the launch of Bite of Reality Remote, which utilizes a proprietary app, PowerPoint and expertise of credit union officials to offer a safe alternative to the once in-person event.

In a statement, RMJ Foundation Executive Director Tena Lozano explained, “The idea is that credit unions would set up a video call that students would log into from their computer or laptop, and download the app onto their phones.
