Delta Community announces financial education program

Delta Community Credit Union is partnering with brass Media, a company helping young adults set a strong foundation for their future by teaching them how money impacts their lives.

The brass student program provides local high school teachers with materials that teach students about personal finance while meeting educational standards. Materials include the brass Magazine Student Edition, a lifestyle magazine about "the money side of life" written by young adults for young adults. There is also online access to the Teacher Resource Center.

In addition to the materials, Delta Community Credit Union representatives are also available to bring "the money side of life" directly into the classroom. Teachers interested in having a classroom presentation should contact Maria Peifer at maria.peifer@deltacommunitycu.com.

The brass Media student program joins other Delta Community initiatives designed to support young people, including Quaterlife, Serve and Deserve, the annual scholarship and Credit Unions for Kids, which supports Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
