The Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union (UKRFCU) Summer Internship offers an opportunity to learn firsthand about the work of consumer financial services institutions. Interns will work at the Northeast Philadelphia headquarters of the UKRFCU and will learn about and participate in the day-to-day operation of one of the largest credit unions in the Philadelphia region. Interns will develop a basic understanding of the ways in which consumer financial services are provided. They will learn about the difference between banks and credit unions and how these differences affect the manner which credit unions conduct their business. Through the Credit Union’s Board Member Shadowing Program, interns will also have the opportunity to meet and interact with members of the Credit Union’s Board of Directors, learn about the careers of these professionals and develop the mentoring relationships that will help them advance their own careers after completing academic studies.
