Partnering with the Janesville School District for Financial Literacy

Blackhawk Community Credit Union was recently awarded a grant from the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation to help offer web-based personal finance lessons to students in grades  K-12 in the Janesville School District. To help accomplish this goal, we purchased 10 iPads that serve as portable teaching devices. Each iPad includes 20 applications that we researched and selected to meet the needs of various grade levels on key financial topics and to appeal to student interests. This summer we have been designing lessons for students to use with the iPads to engage in financial learning and decision-making. Lessons will cover such areas as saving and wealth building, improving creditworthiness and budgeting. We are also training six of our student tellers to be Financial Literacy Student Ambassadors. They will serve as role models and leaders in their schools providing peer-to-peer financial education. With the partnership we established with the Janesville Schools, the District is now

Online Security

Blackhawk Community Credit Union works hard to protect your account from security threats.  We employ a 'layered approach' of multiple barriers between your account information and the outside world rather than just a single level of security. We utilize such measures as multi-factor authentication, encryption, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, around-the-clock proactive monitoring, routers, demilitarized zones and antivirus protection. Last month a couple of news stories made mainstream media about a specific type of cyber- attack called Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) against some of the most well-known US bank and credit unions sites.
