As a teen, you probably don’t want the same savings account your six year old brother or sister has. You want something cool. Something you can earn rewards YOU want like movie passes and gift cards! With our Elements Teen Program, Community Star Credit Union has all sorts of stuff designed with you in mind.
You want things to be easy, so that’s what we did! You'll automatically receive E-statements when you provide us with an e-mail address (which means you'll receive your statements electronically rather than printed on paper). You also get free membership in our Elements of Money financial-education program which includes the Elements of Money quarterly newsletter, website, and online communities on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter…and everything’s FREE!
We have several special Elements Teen accounts created just for our teen members like:
