SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- San Francisco Federal Credit Union (SFFedCU) today announced its 2019 Youth Scholarship program for high school seniors in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties. A total of $10,000 will be awarded to four students – two from each county.

“We believe our youth are the future and we want to do our part to ensure the success of our future generations,” said CEO Jonathan Oliver. SFFedCU encourages financial literacy starting at an early age. The 45,000 member, not-for-profit organization makes yearly donations to the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco, and has a special Youth Accounts program, launched in partnership with the City, that helps teach youngsters the importance of saving money for the future.

The Youth Scholarship program was established to assist students who are members of SFFedCU and plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs.
