Credit Union Spotlight: Georgia United Credit Union

GA UnitedIn September, Georgia United Credit Union held a storefront ribbon cutting at the Mike and Lynn Cottrell Junior Achievement Discovery Center. 

The Georgia United storefront is a simulated economy where middle school students take active roles to learn how to manage their personal finances and how to run a business.

“We’re excited to work with the students at this new location and help them understand how to use classroom concepts in real-world situations,” said Debbie Smith, Georgia United president, and CEO. “Giving the students the opportunity to apply their knowledge while making independent decisions empowers them to believe in themselves and to make positive choices later in life.”

The JA Discovery Center provides students the opportunity to learn financial concepts while increasing their communication and creative thinking skills. In addition to the storefront, Georgia United also sponsors the Discovery Center’s boardroom and learning hub, where volunteers meet to prepare for the students’ arrival.

The new JA Discovery Center anticipates serving 15,000 Georgia students from schools in Calhoun City, Dawson County, Forsyth County, Gainesville City, Hall County and Lumpkin County.
