With the understanding that the youth are the future, TECU’s commitment to creating and securing your future includes the provision of opportunities for our young TECU community.  We seek to empower, educate, recognize, reward and teach our youth to appreciate volunteerism and most importantly expose them to the Credit Union Philosophy.
