Just For Youth

Habits Are Formed Early

Humans are creatures of habit. Developing sound saving habits at an early age can have a significant impact on the financial futures of our youth. Making good financial choices, early on in life, can help individuals develop a comfortable relationship with – and automatic response to – common banking decisions.

For elementary and  high school students, we offer a number of unique savings accounts and program, providing youth with the opportunity to learn and practice healthy savings habits.


Bright Stars

Our Bright Stars program is available for children between the ages of 3 and 10. Your child/grandchild must be the primary owner of his/her own savings account, and a deposit of at least $5.00 must be made each quarter. As a Bright Star member, they receive a package, each quarter, with a Kirby Kangaroo Club newsletter and fun activities. Visit our Kirby Kangaroo page for interactive games, stories and activities. We want to encourage children to save and start great financial habits early.

Members less than 18 years of age can open a Certificate of Deposit with a minimum balance of $250.00. They will also earn an additional .01% for each birthday they have reached, with a maximum addition of .17% above our standard rate.

*An early withdrawal penalty may be assessed for early maturity based on the term.
