Youth Financial Advisory Board helps prepare students for life after high school!

YORK, PA (April 20, 2017) — First Capital Federal Credit Union’s Youth Financial Advisory Board (YFAB) held its last meeting for the 2016-2017 school year.  During the four sessions held over the course of two months, York County high school students learned about budgeting, understanding your credit, jobs available in the financial services industry, as well as the differences between banks and credit unions.

“This year we changed our focus,” said Lisa Barshinger, YFAB Coordinator.  “We made the sessions more educational, which we thought would better prepare students for life after high school.”

Fifteen juniors and seniors participated in all 4 sessions.  During the last session, we awarded two students with $500 scholarships; Abby Jovich from Central York High School and Meagan Holder from South Western High School.  Three other students received gift cards as well.

We are currently accepting applications from York County High School juniors and seniors for the 2017 – 2018 YFAB sessions.  Please contact Lisa Barshinger at 717.747.6393 or by email at for more information.

Meagan Holder and Abby Jovich each received $500 scholarships from First Capital Federal Credit Union.
