Rural Alaska Credit ServiceFinancial Education

RCS has developed financial education workshops covering the areas of, fraud, credit, and financial management that are tailored for day visits to rural Alaska villages. When you contract with RCS, we handle all travel arrangements, marketing of workshops and provide workshop reports to your company on attendance and what the primary needs of the attendees were.

Because RCS feels that financial education of rural Alaska youth is important before they graduate, we incorporate a visit to the local high school as a part of each of our trips. High school juniors and seniors receive a presentation on how fraud and credit will affect them after graduation. This is done at no cost to your company.

In addition to the afternoon adult presentations, RCS will meet with residents one-on-one in the evening if they express a need for follow-up assistance. Although each individual session is unique, typically they consist of:
Budgeting and money saving ideas
Personal credit issues
Banking issues

Familiar with various subsistence hunting times of the year and schedule workshops around these times or larger workshop participation.
Through trial and error, we have concluded that afternoon presentations that last no more than 1 hour fit best into rural Alaska residents’ daily schedule.
Familiar with the various ways rural residents are targeted with fraudulent activities.

Technology has brought many benefits to Rural Alaska, from internet shopping to medical imaging. However, it has not come without its pitfalls. Rural Alaska residents, and in particular the elderly, are increasingly becoming victims of e-mail scams and internet fraud through stolen identities.

The State of Alaska Division of Banking & Securities attempts to bring awareness through their website and mail campaigns, but this has proven ineffective. RCS is familiar with the tactics used to target rural Alaska residents and believes that face-to-face education is the only way to spread awareness.
