VyStar Launches High School Debit Card Give Back Program to Support Area Schools

May 16th, 2022 · Leave a Comment

VyStar Credit Union recently launched its High School Debit Card Give Back Program, which provides financial support to the 18 area high schools with VyStar branches when participating members complete financial transactions.

Each high school involved in the VyStar Academy of Business High School Branch Program has a unique debit card that is branded with its school logo and is available to anyone with a VyStar personal checking account. Through the Give Back Program, VyStar will donate 5 cents to the corresponding school for every purchase made with that school’s debit card. Donations will be up to $10,000 per year for each school.

Any VyStar member with a personal checking account can visit a branch to request a school-branded debit card to participate in the new program. Additionally, opening a personal checking account can be done online, at a branch or by calling VyStar’s Contact Center at 904-777-6000 or 800-445-6289. VyStar’s Contact Center representatives are available every day, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., excluding holidays. For information about a specific branch, please visit VyStar’s locations webpage.

VyStar launched the High School Branch Program in 2006 to provide work-site experience and paid internship opportunities to students across the communities it serves. The program enables students to experience the inner workings of key financial services, as the day-to-day operations of the high school branches are managed by a team of students under the co-supervision of the school’s career and technical education teacher and VyStar personnel. Since the program was created, more than 1,500 paid student internships have been completed, and over 85,000 students have received financial education. Additionally, more than 60 student graduates have been hired for full-time positions at VyStar.
