SAFE CU presented California Desjardins Award
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (8/21/09)--The California Credit Union League announced the recipients of its statewide Desjardins Youth Financial Education Awards. SAFE CU, a $1.4 billion asset credit union based in North Highlands, Calif., is the first place winner in the asset category of $250 million and above, and The Golden 1 CU, a nearly $7 billion asset credit union in Sacramento, received an honorable mention. The number of youth financial literacy presentations made by SAFE CU branch managers at local high schools during the 2008-09 school year was remarkable, said judges, given the fact its field of membership isn't education-based. It also was recognized because of its student-run high school branches. The Golden 1 CU was recognized for its youth financial literacy programs and resources including the National Endowment for Financial Education's High School Financial Planning Program, Junior Achievement and the California and Youth Involvement Network. Winners of state-level contests are eligible to compete in the national award competition, which is coordinated by the Credit Union National Association.
