African-American coalition seeks internships
SHREVEPORT, La. (12/17/07)--The African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) is accepting applications from college students for the AACUC Internship program for fall 2008. The deadline for applications is Feb. 29 (LoneStar Leaguer Dec. 14). Through the program, African-American and African students enrolled in colleges and universities can experience the operations and benefits associated with credit unions and the credit union industry. The purposes and goals of the program include:
* Expanding the interest and increasing the number of minorities in the credit union movement; * Increasing outreach of credit unions in African countries and in the U.S. through credit union mentoring; * Providing scholarship programs and educational opportunities, as well as advancement, for credit union professionals and volunteers; * Enhancing internships and scholarships for African-American and African-descent college students pursuing financial-service careers; and introducing them to, and encouraging them to seek, employment within the credit union movement; and * Providing students enough practical experience to apply for management and other staff positions at credit unions after they graduate.
College juniors and seniors with majors in business, accounting, marketing or computer science are eligible for the program. For more information, use the link.
