School credit union programs that are fun & student-run.

BayPort has 50 Student-Run Credit Unions (SRCU) inside local elementary, middle, and high schools. We partner with schools to host savings days and educational programs, and open a fully functioning BayPort branch inside the building. Students operate the branch as tellers, and receive hands-on experience learning and performing all duties from accepting applications to processing deposits. The branch serves as a convenient place for students and faculty to bank.
