SCE Federal Credit Union Foundation representative Shay Olivarria facilitates a discussion the difference between credit unions and banks at Camp Miss Independent.

Students really enjoyed Shay’s presentations. They said they learned:

“The difference between banks and credit unions”

“I can start saving money now”

“Start saving around $50 a month and I’ll have lots by the time I’m 30 years old. So save, save, save!”

“Retirement fund and realizing that I NEED to save money if I want to have a comfortable lifestyle”

“Debit cards do not effect your credit”

“Setting short & long term goals …just setting financial goals in general”

“The eye opening information makes me realize that I need to make smarter decisions”

“Saving money but also knowing how to use it”

I had a great time working with the students that attended Camp Miss Independent 2012!
