ORLANDO, FL (December 14, 2021) - Insight Credit Union is pleased to announce the opening of its first student branch and learning laboratory at Lake Minneola High School.
The branch, located inside a classroom building on the high school’s campus, serves as a training facility where students gain realistic, practical experience in the financial services industry.
To become a student intern at the school’s credit union branch students must be enrolled in the Finance Academy, entering their junior or senior year, and be 16 years of age or older. They receive training from the credit union while at school and off site in other branches, and they may have the opportunity to obtain part-time employment with Insight outside of school hours if they desire to do so.
“We are excited to be offering this opportunity to Lake Minneola High School students,” said Insight Credit Union Chief Risk Officer Jesse Dean. “We are excited to be here, to continue offering our services, to expand our reach and to be part of this great program.”
The Lake Minneola High School Office is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 am to 1 pm, allowing students, teachers and school administrators to make withdrawals and deposits and manage their accounts in a variety of ways.
