SANTA ROSA, CA (March 11, 2019) — As part of a career exploration day, 33 students visited the Santa Rosa headquarters of Redwood Credit Union (RCU) on Tuesday, March 5.

From 9am until noon, students learned what a career with a credit union is like. They were welcomed by Brett Martinez, RCU’s President and Chief Executive Officer, and Matt Martin, Senior Vice President of Community and Government Relations. Next, they took part in a workshop, toured the building, and participated in a discussion with featured panelists and departments.

“Education is one of the pillars of our community efforts,” said Martin. “Learning about the world around us and gaining the ability to change it into something better is vitally important. We’re proud to support education, including days like this that help young adults begin to envision their futures.”

When asked “What would you like to see next time?” one student shared, “A job application and a bright future for myself!”
