Youth Banking Program
It’s important to teach youth how to manage the money God has given them. We provide in-school banking services, reward youth for saving money, and give them the opportunity to enter fun contests. We host elementary field trips where students learn more about the Credit Union and the value of money. For high school students, we offer Career and Life Management (CALM) presentations and award scholarships at participating schools.
Access your accounts with Internet Banking or visit the Youth Banking Display at a participating school to make a deposit. Use your MEMBER CARD® to make point of sale transactions at local merchants. Deposit or withdraw cash from any ATM that is part of ACCULINK® Credit Union network without paying extra fees.
Check your account balance and history with any text enabled mobile device. Deposit cheques, send Interac e-Transfers, and pay bills with our Mobile App. You can download the app from the iTunes App Store or the Google® Play Store.
FAT CAT® accounts include 10 FREE transactions per month. HeadStart® accounts include 50 FREE transactions, 1 FREE INTERAC e-Transfer, and 1 FREE Non-Credit Union ATM transaction per month.*
Visit a Christian Credit Union branch or the Youth Banking display at your participating school and provide the items below. All youth must have a parent present.
- Valid ID: Driver’s License, Passport, Birth Certificate or Alberta Health Care
- Youth’s Social Insurance Number (if available)
- $5.00 for your first deposit
A staff member from Christian Credit Union or a volunteer from your school will open the account or help you get started.
Note: MemberCards® are available upon request with parental consent.
*Does not include fees that may be charged by non-C.U. ATMs
