Every saver is unique, but most people who save regularly developed the habit early in life. Learning to delay gratification in order to save for long-term goals is a crucial life skill, and one Velocity Community Credit Union is committed to helping our youngest members develop. That's why we create programs and services designed specifically for young people.
Open an account for your child or teen, and take the opportunity to talk to them about money, banking, and the importance of saving.
Our financial program for ages 13-17, Claim Your Youth, is designed for building key life skills such as managing finances.
Youth Checking Account - includes a Visa Debit Card that earns reward points!
Youth Certificates with special terms to help them get started
