SAFE Community Impact Manager Amanda Merz joins Good Day Sacramento at Rio Linda High School Branch

FOLSOM, California – (January 13, 2021) –  SAFE Credit Union Community Impact Manager Amanda Merz joined Good Day Sacramento at Rio Linda High School as the news channel aired an on-live report from the SAFE branch on the campus. SAFE Credit Union partners with Rio Linda High School to provide real-world work experience with an emphasis on financial literacy. 

SAFE has hosted a branch on the Rio Linda campus for 20 years. Students operate the branch themselves and help their peers open bank accounts while getting hands-on experience in customer service.


“It's such an incredible skill for students to learn about financial literacy, teach financial literacy to their peers, and gain career experience from working in a branch,” Merz says. She also shared that SAFE has hired over 30 employees from this program over the years.
