Bite of Reality app

Reality Fair

Using the Bite of Reality® app, this interactive event gives teens a taste of financial realities. They’ll learn how to make good financial decisions and understand the challenges of living on a budget. Teens are given an occupation, credit score, family, and debt, and experience “purchasing” housing, cars, food, and other expenses.

Fun & Student-Run Credit Union Programs

We’ve partnered with over 50 SRCUs to open a fully functioning BayPort branch inside local elementary, middle, and high schools. Students serve as tellers and receive hands-on experience performing all kinds of credit union duties from accepting applications to processing deposits. The branch is a convenient place for students and faculty to bank.
