Kinecta FCU helps students reach for financial empowerment
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (10/29/10)--Students from Richstone Family Center recently learned about keeping money safe and secure, ways to protect themselves from identity theft, and careers in the financial services industry during a visit to Kinecta FCU’s Manhattan Beach Member Service Center. In addition to learning these valuable lessons from Kinecta’s Financial Empowerment program, the students had the opportunity to tour the credit union and talk with the staff. “At the Richstone Center, children and teens have the opportunity to learn essential skills to help prepare them for success. The ability to manage money and plan their finances is extremely important,” said Rolando Ramirez, executive director, Richstone Family Center. Kinecta’s Financial Empowerment program is one component of the credit union’s ongoing support of the Richstone Family Center based in Hawthorne. Since 2007, Kinecta employees have volunteered to present money management lessons, provide assistance to families in need through holiday giving programs, and rally teams to participate in Richstone’s annual Pier-to-Pier Walkathon. “There is a pressing need to increase financial literacy among young people today,” said Tigran Kojoglyan, vice president, Retail Services. For more than 36 years, the Richstone Family Center has worked to prevent and treat child abuse, strengthen families, and prevent violence in families, schools and communities.
