Students at Glendale High School will now have the opportunity to visit university engineering programs, thanks in part to funding from California Credit Union through its fall 2022 Teacher Grant program. The grant will help increase opportunities for equity in the field of computer science by providing field trip opportunities for students to explore college programs specific to the field of computer science.

        “California Credit Union was founded to support the education community, and our grant program is one way we are continuing to support teachers as they work to engage and inspire their students through innovative programs,” said California Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell. “We congratulate all of our grant recipients, and applaud the creative ways they are bringing learning to life for their students.”

As part of its commitment to help educators create innovative learning opportunities for their students, the credit union has provided 10 grants of $500 each to underwrite class projects across Los Angeles County. The credit union grants will fund a diverse range of programs illustrating the creativity and commitment teachers bring to their classrooms and communities.
