Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union is honored to announce its newest Feel Good Checking™ partner, Washington Business Week.
Since 1976, Washington Business Week has offered teenagers from around the state exciting educational opportunities through a week-long summer camp. Whether the student is interested in business, healthcare, construction or just curious about what it is like in the professional world, WBW provides them with exciting hands on experience and a valuable head start on reaching their professional goals.
WBW faculty includes local business professionals who speak on various topics and act as onsite advisors for WBW attendees.
WBW has sessions each year at universities across Washington State giving teens the opportunity to preview area colleges while experiencing the college student life. WBW enrollees stay in university dorms and take classes in university lecture halls. This makes WBW a valuable experience for every teen, regardless of their career choice.
To celebrate its partnership with WBW, SMCU will be offering a $50 tuition discount to Washington Business Week 2011. The discount is available to any student who is eligible to attend WBW 2011 and is a member of SMCU or the child or grandchild of an SMCU member. (Applications are here.)
You can help Washington Business Week continue to make a difference in children’s lives by opening an SMCU Feel Good Checking™ account. As a Feel Good Checking™ partner, WBW will receive up to $20 from SMCU whenever a member opens a Feel Good Checking™ account and selects WBW as the donation recipient.
Through this unique checking account, SMCU has been able to donate thousands of dollars to deserving local non-profit programs, just like Washington Business Week, and provide a great checking account for our members.
