Building financial security through education
Welcome to Red River Credit Union's Financial Literacy page! We believe that building financial security starts with education, and we are proud to offer a variety of financial courses, presentations, and workshops to the communities we serve.
Our outreach program is designed for students (pre-K through 12th grade) and the adult community in our field of membership areas. In addition, we host reality fairs for students to practice making choices about housing, transportation, food, clothing, etc. with a limited amount of income. We understand the importance of understanding budgeting, credit scores, identity theft, and so much more, which is why our financial education program is a learned skill, just like any other class a student would study in high school.
On average, individuals who complete our financial program spend less money on wants and save twice as much as those who have not received financial knowledge! We offer a variety of financial topics to target specific needs and interests, including Essential Banking Basics, Budgeting, Using Credit Wisely, Identity Theft, and Taxes 101.
We are excited to announce our upcoming
This fair will be a great opportunity for students to learn and practice real-world budgeting skills.
As a part of our commitment to financial literacy, we are also offering Zogo, a mobile app that teaches financial literacy and rewards you for doing so! This app is for everyone from high school to retirement, and RRCU is offering it to members and non-members for free with the access code: RRCU. We also offer a free classroom version to help students with their financial journey.
New! Zogo now has Text-to-Voice on pages and Spanish Language option in Profile.

Student Intern Program
Red River Credit Union offers a unique Student Teller/Intern Program, providing high school students with an opportunity to work in our student branch and acquire skills in the financial industry at a young age. The program gives the student tellers real-world experience by working at a variety of departments/locations after school with seasoned employees. We know this program is beneficial for the students we hire and the schools we partner with.
