You can see how personal experiences and a passion for youth financial literacy motivate those who lead CUNA’s youth financial literacy efforts. It’s more than a “job” to Lin, Rena, and Philip… their role at CUNA is something much deeper than that. To these folks, their job is about making a difference and helping credit unions help their members.
