At the ēCO Credit Union Foundation, we love getting out in the schools that are in our greater Birmingham community! We offer presentations that span from what a credit card is to compound interest to the differences between student loans, grants and scholarships. If you would like to request a seminar for your classroom, contact Melissa and Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to accommodate you!
We are looking for:
Educators that are in charge of financial education for their students and/or school.
Educators with upperclassmen that could benefit from financial basics + college financial prep.
School systems that are looking for financial education seminars for students.
Administrators who are looking to educate their teachers for professional development on budgeting or offering a free financial seminar for their teachers.
We are flexible! If you have another idea, simply contact us to share.
