The Delaware Bank at School program teaches elementary & middle school students about financial management by providing real banking experience at their school. The program helps them learn to take charge of their money by learning to save and spend wisely. The program provides teachers with lessons highlighting the advantages of saving that correlate with the Delaware State Standards in Economics. Students at some schools may even get the opportunity to serve as bank tellers in the Bank at School Credit Union branch!
Students may open non-custodial edUFCU Share Savings Accounts. This account is opened in the student’s name only and is FREE to open.
