Junior Board of Directors

Student Leadership in Montana
Since 2012, Whitefish Credit Union has offered the Junior Board of Directors leadership program to junior and senior high school students in the Flathead Valley.


The mission of the Junior Board of Directors at Whitefish Credit Union is to educate and lead high school students through the credit union model and board of directors process.

The theme for our Junior Board of Directors will be creative problem solving of current events related to a growing financial cooperative. Students will listen to guest speakers, lead focused discussions, brainstorm, and practice decision-making skills. 

Education Scholarship:

Those who complete the requirements and submit a letter of acceptance into college will receive a $500 education scholarship paid directly to the participant.


The Junior Board of Directors is open to juniors and seniors from:

  • Bigfork High School
  • Columbia Falls High School
  • Flathead High School
  • Glacier High School
  • Stillwater Christian School
  • Whitefish High School

Junior Board members are expected to participate in monthly meetings, which are held in various locations in the Flathead Valley.
