Editors note: We asked each of our three finalists to create a video with the theme, "Tell us why young people should join a credit union."
For my challenge video, I went out into the community to speak with 18 to 25 year olds about their financial institutions. I met many credit union members as well as a few people with accounts at big banks. I found that credit union members had diverse reasons for joining and those who weren't members had issues with their financial institutions. The overriding theme of the conversations was instant gratification. Our generation demands immediacy, so we need a financial institution that delivers fast, easy access to our money. Check out my video and learn how credit unions can help you satisfy your need for instant gratification.
