Credit Union Expedition

Explore what it's like to work at American Heritage.


American Heritage Credit Union believes that everyone should have access to financial resources, starting with our local educational institutions.

The Credit Union Expedition is a FREE program that we offer to local high schools to educate students about the importance of creating a healthy financial mindset. Classes are invited to take part in a guided presentation by one of our employees in the Community Room at our Red Lion branch in Northeast Philadelphia. Students will learn about a variety of personal finance topics through a variety of engaging mediums and exercises to become financially well-rounded individuals.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Budget their money
  • Understand loans and interest
  • Understand the difference between banks and credit unions
  • Choose between types of accounts
  • Build and use credit

At the end of the presentation students will have the option to open their own American Heritage Credit Union savings account. If they choose to open an account, they will need to provide their ID and $15 to deposit into the account. Employees of the credit union will assist them with their membership application as well as show them how they can access their assets through our various digital platforms and app.

* Schools are expected to provide transportation to and from the credit union. We also highly encourage students to bring their state issued ID or driver’s license and $15 if they would like to open an account.
