AACUC Reaching Toward the Future Internship Program

Program Description


The AACUC has developed this Internship program to promote awareness and opportunities for African American and other students attending colleges and universities of the benefits of working in a Credit Union environment. We are seeking students majoring in Business, Finance, Accounting, Marketing or Computer Science, that currently hold a minimum of a C+ average. The rate of pay will be determined by the region. The internships will last 8 – 10 weeks during the summer.

The students that participate in this program will glean practical experience in a variety of ways that will enhance their ability to market themselves upon graduation. You will form relationships that will benefit you professionally and personally. You will learn various aspects of the inner workings of credit unions (i.e., loans, deposits, investing and marketing). It is the goal of this program that the students will gain enough practical experience within a credit union that they will be able to apply for management and other staff positions in credit unions after graduation.

All entries, which include the questionnaire and essay, must be submitted to AACUC by email or mail by 5:00pm EST on May 24, 2024.
