Thinkwise participates in the School District’s Internship program
Giving back to the communities we serve is an important part of Thinkwise Credit Union’s culture. We especially focus on programs that foster financial education for our youth and community members. Since 2007, Thinkwise has been an active participant in San Bernardino City Unified School District’s Asterisk Program (A.S.T.E.R.I.S.K.). A.S.T.E.R.I.S.K. helps 100 high school teens gain employment during the summer through paid internships with the district’s community and business partners.
Thinkwise offers one to two internship opportunities per year. During their employment with the credit union, students are assigned to work in each department, which enables the interns to obtain good work ethics, learn team building and gain valuable work and financial experience. The program has been a huge success. Thinkwise has employed two of our interns after they completed high school graduation.
Parents and teens can learn more about A.S.T.E.R.I.S.K. through the San Bernardino City Unified School District or Thinkwise Credit Union.
