Student-Run Branches

Innovative Educational Opportunities For Students

Atomic Credit Union believes a solid and well-rounded education must also include real-world lessons. That's why we have partnered with 14 school districts located throughout Ohio to establish more than 25 Student-Run Credit Union Branches. Students are provided hands-on learning activities and job duties concerning Personal Finances and the Financial Industry. 

Improving Financial Literacy in Local Schools

Student-Run Credit Union Members learn a variety of skills that Atomic Credit Union hopes will help develop a strong foundation for life-long financial competency. The long-term goal of improving financial literacy and understanding the relationship between earning, spending and saving starts here. Students cover numerous topics during the school year which include:

  • Savings Accounts
  • Checking Accounts
  • Deposits
  • Withdrawals
  • Debit MasterCards
  • ATM Cards
  • Online Banking
  • Mobile Banking
  • Interest Rates
  •  Children's Online Privacy Policy
