Ready for more

You’re doing everything in your power to pass down important life lessons so your teen approaches adulthood like a seasoned champ. You work hard to give them the best that life has to offer because you want them to do better, dream higher, and achieve more. You’ve put in the work, and now it’s time to reap the rewards. Your teen is building communities, challenging the status quo, and envisioning a better tomorrow. They are setting the groundwork for what they want the world to look like and you’ve been right there, every step of the way. You deserve a break, and your teen deserves the brightest future. We got you.

As kids become teens, they shouldn’t feel like their future is on unstable ground. SunWest Credit Union wants our Future Funders, teenagers 13-17 years old, to be ready to answer the call when it’s time to fund their dreams. Together we can provide your high achiever with the tools, support, and motivation they need to tackle obstacles and pave the way to bigger and better things.

Success starts here

Teenagers are smart, but they are also still figuring out their place in the world. They’re discovering their voice, expanding their perspective, and harnessing their strengths to create a solid foundation for the rest of their lives.

They need a financial partner that gets them and one that provides a safe place for continued learning. Our Future Funders Accounts not only help prepare teens for a healthy financial future, but these youth accounts also offer exclusive access to a team of professionals.

As members of SunWest, they have opportunities to engage with our staff, ask important questions, and follow our blog and social media to learn all about their finances. Share the good news with your teen and tell them to get get ready because class is in session:

Looking forward

You blinked and all of a sudden, your teen is almost 18. To say you both have a lot on your plates would be an understatement. Your teen is getting ready to take control of their finances and you’re getting ready to send them off into the world, alone for the first time. We know just how daunting this chapter can be and the road ahead may feel unpredictable and intimidating.

As hectic as this season can be, SunWest wants to assure you that we’re pros at making both of your lives easier. That’s why we've made banking with SunWest simple: your teen will automatically advance to our Journey Account program, which was designed specifically for 18-22 year olds. We've got your back at every step of the way so you can focus on you.
