Educational Employees Credit Union (EECU) opened a
full-service branch and ATM on the Clovis West High School campus on August 30,
2016. The branch is a partnership between EECU and Clovis Unified School
The EECU Clovis West Branch staff consists of EECU employees
and approximately 30 Clovis Unified School District students who are
participating in the Career & Technical Education
pathway in banking. This program provides the students with an opportunity to
join the EECU team as a volunteer. The students assist members with their
financial needs by performing a variety of teller transactions and offering
membership and loan information to current and potential EECU members. In
August of each year a new team of students is trained to work in the branch.
The student volunteers receive
extensive training from EECU staff to prepare them to work in the branch as
student financial services representatives. In addition to gaining work
experience, the students are also taking a personal banking class. In
this class, the students learn money management skills, how to create a budget,
credit score basics, how to save for retirement, and much more. These
skills will be helpful when the students begin their careers in banking/finance
and they are also important for personal financial growth and independence.
The branch is located at 1070 E. Teague Ave., Fresno, CA 93720 and is open to the public Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
