My Credit Union Mentor


My Credit Union Mentor

The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (Federation), the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC), and the Network of Latino Credit Unions and Professionals (NLCUP) have launched My Credit Union Mentor, a mentorship program to benefit small, minority-owned and faith-based credit unions. In many of the communities where Federation, AACUC and NLCUP members operate, community development credit unions are the only financial institution providing safe and affordable financial products and services to low-income families, immigrants, seniors and young people looking for alternatives to mainstream banks.

Mentors are drawn from throughout the credit union industry to provide the expertise small credit unions need to remain a vibrant resource in their communities. Mentorship opportunities include:

  • Strategic planning
  • Lending
  • Fiscal Management
  • Marketing
  • Secondary Capital
  • Board Governance
  • Compliance
  • Operations
  • Budgeting
  • Collections

Mentors share their skills and experience on a volunteer basis. The Federation, AACUC and NLCUP jointly administer the program, supported by a database of mentors, prospective and participating credit unions and program outcomes.
