TCCU Exec Team Empowers Teen Girls with Girls Inc. of Tarrant County
Friday, July 7, 2017 6:55 AM

TCCU with Girls Inc. of Tarrant County

Tarrant County's Credit Union hosted a financial education class on June 29, followed by a short Q&A session for a group of teen students who attend Girls, Inc. of Tarrant County. This meeting offered financial basics to the group and the opportunity to speak with and hear from women in leading roles of a financial institution.

The financial course offered insightful information on goal setting and real-life application. It also provided helpful information, including the difference between credit unions and banks, avoiding predatory lenders, and how maintaining good credit is a lifelong responsibility.

The time with the students concluded with the opportunity to have lunch with TCCU’s all-women executive team. During lunch, each executive team staff member shared their personal education and career path story, as well as advice and tips for success in setting and reaching goals. Lunch was followed by a brief but fun Q&A session.

TCCU’s goal in hosting this event with Girls, Inc. of Tarrant County is in keeping with their current Women in Development initiative, which empowers and equips young women to become the leaders of tomorrow.

“I believe that young women starting out need to know that everything they want is within reach if they’re willing to work for it,” said TCCU CEO Lily Newfarmer. "They should find their passion and never stop learning."

TCCU is excited to make this contribution to the community and looks forward to working closely with Girls Inc. of Tarrant County in the future.
