1st Advantage FCU Provides Digital Financial Education to Local Schools

(YORKTOWN, VA) – At 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union supporting our communities also means supporting our students. Together with EVERFI, a leading education technology company, we were able to bring a digital-based financial education program to 2,659 students for a total of 12,904 hours of learning across 12 local schools. The program enabled students to practice and develop healthy financial habits through real-world scenarios and engaging educational interactions.

Prior to the start of the program, students took a financial education assessment. At the end of the program, another assessment was given and showed that students had increased their scores by 55%! Our learners saw the most gains in the areas of credit & debt, insurance, and budgeting.

1st Advantages’ partnership with EVERFI has allowed students to learn important financial skills at no cost to the district, schools, or teachers. Our goal remains to give as many students as possible access to this crucial financial education program. The combination of knowledge, confidence, and healthy habits sets learners up for financial well being now and in the future. These skills will undoubtedly serve students well in their journey to financial success.

Eustis Federal Credit Union, 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union with assets of over $800 million operates 14 branches in Southeastern Virginia and parts of North Carolina.
