Who We Are

Hi! We're glad you found us.
Welcome to the Cooperative Trust,
the award-winning credit union emerging leader community.

We host a passionate online community, lead the acclaimed Crash program, connect rising talent with thought leaders, and work with credit unions to strengthen their young adult strategy and engagement. 

We live by these words penned by Ed Filene, a founding father of the American credit union movement:

“Youth is too serious to become obedient.”

Rising Talent Spotlight
