Peer Financial Counselors - Meritrust Credit Union Scholars
A former peer financial counselor shares the value of the peer counselor experience:
"As I reflect back on my time on campus, Powercat Financial has been the most beneficial organization I was a part of. Now that I’m looking to buy a house, insurance, and all that comes with “adulting”, being a counselor is still paying dividends, and I’m sure will never stop doing so! The amount I learned, not only about financial information but how to communicate with others and understand their needs, is unmatched by any other experience I had on campus. I’m very fortunate to have been a small part of such an amazing program."

Having a good understanding of one’s finances is a great way to reduce this stress. I reduce stress and save money by using a prepaid debit card for each month.
