Good money habits don’t form out of thin air—they have to be learned. Like academics, providing strong building blocks at an early age helps ensure success. To start our younger members on the path to financial wellness sooner, BayPort offers an entire suite of youth-focused programs, student resources, and educational tools.
For more information on any of our youth programs, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

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.
The BayPort Foundation serves as our philanthropic arm and offers $100,000 in college scholarships each year to students.
BayPort also offers Student Choice Loans to help fill in college funding gaps after scholarships. You can even refinance existing student loans into one simple payment.
We understand K-12 educators have a huge impact on challenging and motivating our students to succeed. To assist teachers with creating new and innovative programs, BayPort offers grants valued at up to $1,000 each for the school year.
