Travis Credit Union Hosts ‘Finance U’ Events
to Promote Financial Aid
 

Virtual Forums to Educate Teens on Options for Postsecondary Opportunities after High School 

 

 

Vacaville, CA – Travis Credit Union invites young adults to attend ‘Finance U,’ an interactive virtual event designed to teach youth about financial aid opportunities for postsecondary education, choosing a school and preparing for campus life and admissions. Events will be held on November 20, December 3 and 10.

The program will include special guests and giveaways to engage youth interested in higher education after high school. All youth (ages 13-21) registered for the event will be entered in a drawing to win a new Chromebook. Attendees can register at traviscu.org/finance-u.

Since 2006, Travis Credit Union has come together with community partners to increase student awareness of available state and federal opportunities for financial aid. These events exemplify TCU’s mission to provide financial wellness in the community reflecting the credit union’s “Awesome Cause” of providing financial education, financial literacy and financial advocacy to all it serves.

One of the goals of the event is to ensure students learn about the available financial aid resources from financial aid experts. Last year, the California Student Aid Commission reported that only 54 percent of California’s public high school seniors completed a FAFSA or Dream Act application.

“By promoting a postsecondary education after high school, we are seeking to help youth avoid common financial vulnerabilities and build economic stability for themselves and the communities in which they live,” said Barry Nelson, president and CEO of Travis Credit Union.

“Ensuring that our students know various forms of aid are available is more crucial than ever, especially during this ongoing public health and economic crisis,” said Marlene Garcia, Executive Director of the California Student Aid Commission.

The ‘Finance U’ events are hosted in partnership with Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS), the California Student Aid Commission, Immigrants Rising, the #WeBelonginCollege campaign and the Personal Statement film, featuring the event’s keynote speaker, Karoline Jimenez.

Headquartered in Vacaville, California, Travis Credit Union is a not-for-profit cooperative financial institution serving those who live, work, worship, or attend school in Alameda, Colusa, Contra Costa, Merced, Napa, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, and Yolo Counties. Currently, Travis Credit Union is the 13th largest credit union in California with more than 214,000 members and more than $3.9 billion in assets. As one of the leading financial institutions in Solano, Contra Costa, Napa, Yolo and Merced Counties, Travis Credit Union’s strength lies in its faithful commitment to its members and the community; its solid, secure history; and its long-standing track record of dedicated service.

As a business owner you might’ve heard about the term “reputation management”. Basically, reputation management refers to methods of influencing and controlling an individual’s or business’s reputation, an increasingly important factor when it comes to ranking high in online search results - Google and other search engines love a good reputation. Most consumers nowadays research online and read customer reviews of products or services before committing to buy. The impact of reviews on ranking is highly debated among search experts Businesses with many online reviews and photos tend to show up more prominently in local search results. Whether the number of reviews is what causes a business to rank or if it is simply a result of the business being so visible remains unclear. However, having reviews does increase clicks and interactions with your business from search results, and that increase in interaction does have a positive effect on your website’s search engine optimiza
