Robins Financial Credit Union makes a positive impact in the community and was recently awarded the Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award by the Georgia Credit Union Affiliates.

The Desjardins program was created to recognize leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of financial literacy for all ages. The recognition program considers all activities supporting the personal finance education of members and non-members.

Robins Financial Credit Union won this youth education award in the $1 billion+ category for providing the “It’s A Money Thing” program in high school and college classrooms covering topics from basic budgeting to auto and home purchases, managing student loans and understanding credit.

“Our credit union is very committed to giving back to our community. With our financial education program, we give students a better understanding of important financial topics, that they might not learn otherwise. It can also give them the tools they need to make wise financial decisions. We’re happy to be in a position to positively impact students through our partnership with local high schools and colleges,” said Dee Dee Côté, Chief Administrative Officer for Robins Financial Credit Union.
