What do you get when you combine the talents of eight young credit union advocates from all over North America? An original rap, a wild Lady Gaga tribute and an epic Journey classic all created to promote all that’s good and right about credit unions.
What? We took six awesome credit union attributes and set them to music.
- Membership is open to all
- Members call the shots
- Rates and fees should benefit members
- Credit unions are just as accessible as banks
- Financial education should be free and available to all
- Giving back to the community is a priority
Who? Eight of our Young & Free Spokespeople came together to collaborate at our recent Spokester Summit in Indiana. Dex from Alberta, Janelle from Michigan, Jenn from St. Louis, Kaylie from Ontario, Lee from Alabama, Matt from Indiana, Michelle from New Mexico and Seth from Maine. Alex from Tennessee and Darryl from South Carolina weren't able to make the trip, but were with us in spirit!

- Tell the local media
- Encourage employees to post on their social media sites

Janelle and Kaylie take center stage in this iconic Lady Gaga tribute. Favorite line: "Word on the street is that we're too far and few, but our shared branches make that story untrue."
Don't Stop Learning
Lee, Matt and Michelle relive 1981 with metal hair and classic guitar riffs. Favorite line: "There's a place that I remember, provides education for its members and gives back to the community, the list goes on and on and on and on."
Tha Way 2 B
Dex, Jenn and Seth bring the crunk and the funk in this original rap and hiphop showstopper. Favorite line: "Not a customer, I'm a member, I call the shots, if my account were a girl, she'd be so hot."
