WARREN, Mich. – Christian Financial CU is launching its first student-run branch inside De La Salle Collegiate High School.

Christian Financial is working with the high school to introduce a new course, Introduction to Banking, which will be available to students for the first time this fall.  The curriculum will be provided and taught by Christian Financial.

The in-school branch will be operated by students at De La Salle for the benefit of students and school administrators under the cooperative management of Christian Financial and De La Salle. Participating students will receive cooperative credit, and several were employed as summer interns at Christian Financial, which gave them the opportunity to learn branch functions and develop a marketing plan for their branch.
