MCU Youth Board

MINNEDOSA CREDIT UNION YOUTH BOARD

On June 10th, 1992, the Minnedosa Credit Union in conjunction with the Minnedosa Collegiate staff formed a youth board of directors. This was a first for Canadian Credit Unions.

The students apply in grade 10 and are chosen by an interview process. It is then a 2 year program and a scholarship is provided to anyone who completes their first year of post secondary education after serving on the youth board. The youth board has regular monthly meetings involving speakers from our community. A junior achievement game is played and the youth board supplies and sells all the school clothing to the students. It is still very active today, and three of our staff members and a school liaison are the training officers.
