Personal Accounts Teens
Coast Central has a special set of free resources designed especially for teens: the CU Succeed program is all about preparing for your financial future. Learn more about things like:
Budgeting and building credit
Picking the right career for you
Balancing a checking account
You can also earn cash – for you and your school’s Journalism or English department – by submitting articles to the CU Succeed newsletter! They’re always looking for aspiring journalists and love to reward members for contributing their own material.
We give away a big prize to one of our lucky teen members every quarter, just for depositing money in their Coast Central account. Ask for a CU Succeed Deposit Card next time you stop in, and have us initial it each time you make a deposit. After 10 deposits (of $5.00 or more), your card turns into an entry into our prize drawing – so the more you save, the more chances you’ll have to win!
Prize winners are drawn at the end of every quarter (March, June, September, and December). Start saving now – the next prize is a 7″ Kindle Fire!
Each year, Coast Central awards a number of scholarships to local high school graduates who will be attending College of the Redwoods, Humboldt State University, Shasta Community College, or Chico State University full-time. Please see our community support page for more info!
