Ja’Mia Canadiate, Summer Intern
It’s hard to believe another summer supporting the Academy of Finance (AOF) internship program is over. But for Ja’Mia Canadiate, our AOF intern from Brandon High School, it was a life-changing six weeks.
Incoming seniors like Ja’Mia are required to complete a six-week summer internship as part of the AOF Program and Grow Financial partnered with the AOF again this year to host a summer intern.
The seed for the idea of an internship at Grow was planted early for Ja’Mia. She had the opportunity to attend a job shadowing day with us earlier this year and knew this was the business she wanted to work for during her summer internship.
“It was so great to see how well everyone gets along at Grow. Everyone was so friendly, and it seemed like a fun place to work,” Ja’Mia said.
One of Ja’Mia’s top strengths is that her desire for a successful future drives her inspiration to succeed now. Her future is always top-of-mind and was instrumental in her decision to be a part of the AOF. She’s been a member of the AOF since she was a freshman and was excited for the opportunity to shape her future through the summer internship program.
“I really hoped this internship would teach me about all aspects of the finance business and would help me determine what I’m looking for in a career,” she shared.
And by the end of the six weeks, she had done just that. Ja’Mia came to Grow with plans to get her bachelor’s degree in business and one day own her own pharmacy. At the close of her internship, she still wants to pursue a business degree but with the end goal of working in the financial industry.
Ja’Mia hopes to attend college close to home and has already expressed an interest in coming back to work with us here at Grow.
“It’s like you’re a big family here, not just a place you guys come to work, and I’d love to be part of that in the future,” she said.
Justin Yent, AVP, Loan Resolution, and one of her mentors for the summer, reflected on the internship, “We were very proud to have Ja’Mia in our department this summer. She is a shining example of what the future is going to be, and we would be happy to have her back!”
Whatever her future holds, we are proud to have played a role in her success and wish her all the best!
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.

Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
