As teens navigate through the complexities of adolescence, developing a strong foundation in financial literacy becomes increasingly crucial. Recognizing this need, WyHy hopes to support teens through innovative programs aimed at fostering financial independence and educational growth.

WyHy Scholarships

One of the cornerstones of WyHy's commitment to youth empowerment is our Scholarship Program. Each year, WyHy proudly honors four outstanding student members who exemplify academic excellence and a dedication to community service. These scholarships, totaling $6,000 annually, serve as a testament to WyHy's belief in nurturing young talent and rewarding their contributions beyond the classroom.

To be eligible, applicants must
  • Have been a WyHy member for at least a year
  • Be enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time student in a U.S. accredited undergraduate college, university, or technical school.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to their community through extracurricular activities.

Independence Account

The WyHy Independence Account is tailored specifically for high school students and is designed to instill financial responsibility and independence. With no parental supervision required, teens are empowered to manage their finances autonomously, learning essential money management skills that will serve them well into adulthood.

The WyHy Independence Account offers a number of benefits, including:
  • A free Visa Debit Card
  • Online banking capabilities
  • Nationwide ATM access
  • All without hidden fees or minimum balance requirements
By placing teens firmly in the driver's seat of their financial journey, we hope to equip them with the tools and resources necessary to make informed decisions and cultivate lifelong financial habits.

Financial Education with Stukent

WyHy understands the importance of early financial education and has partnered with Stukent to provide meaningful learning experiences for young people. Through engaging financial education programs, students are empowered to explore and expand their knowledge, setting them on a path toward financial success and stability.

By fostering a culture of financial empowerment and education, WyHy is investing in the future of Wyoming's youth and laying the groundwork for a more financially savvy and responsible generation.
