It’s never too early to get students thinking about their financial futures. 

According to national nonprofit Next Gen Personal Finance, fewer than 1 in 6 students in Minnesota are required to take a personal finance course. That’s why the Affinity Plus Foundation partnered with Junior Achievement North, a program that integrates financial education, career readiness, and entrepreneurial curriculum into students’ education. 

It’s important to equip students with these skills, so they’re better able to unlock their potential and enrich their lives. In spring of 2022, the Foundation donated more than $18,000 to Junior Achievement North and its mission. The donation brought Junior Achievement’s curriculum to more than 2,000 students in more than 80 schools across the state. 

Affinity Plus credit union also sent 30 volunteers to partner with their local schools to bring their passion for financial education to the students. It’s been a great exchange for everyone involved, and the Affinity Plus Foundation is honored to have helped bring this partnership to life!
