Financial Wellness

A rising tide lifts all boats. This belief guides our financial education efforts and our commitment to sharing knowledge that helps our members feel confident in their financial decisions.

For Students

Embold partners with Financial Beginnings, which offers financial classes for students in high school and college in Clackamas County. Topics include banking, budgeting, credit, investments, career and education paths, comparing school and costs, managing debt accumulation, and managing debt after college. With nearly a dozen employee volunteers, our team teaches about 1,500-2,000 students a year, in both English and Spanish.

For Adults

Each year, we host a series of workshops specifically designed for the financial wellness of our members and community. The sessions are free and family and friends are always welcome. These workshops are also conducted for our credit union’s community partners throughout the year, available in both English and Spanish.
