The 16-member Youth Advisory Council--established by Texas Trust CU in 2011--developed the website as part of a youth-focused International Credit Union Day campaign.
The website was designed by Jacob Brunson, Angel Murphy, and Alessandra Wheeler--three members of the group, which is made up of students at five north Texas public school districts and two private schools.
The council, which was founded to promote student leadership and personal finance, meets twice a month. Fifty-six students applied for the council's positions, which the incumbents will retain until December.
International Credit Union Day has been held on the third Thursday of October since 1948 to celebrate the difference between credit unions and banks.
