Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders

DECEMBER 8, 2023

In a recent collaboration with Junior Achievement of Southern California, 38 of our dedicated retail volunteers participated in JA Finance Park, a dynamic platform for real-life financial simulations with over 200 8th grade students from surrounding Title 1 middle schools in the city of Compton.

This comprehensive program provided financial lessons, giving students the opportunity to lay the groundwork to make informed financial decisions throughout their lives. The bank volunteers guided 8th grade students through engaging group discussions and provided a fresh perspective on finance, budgeting, savings accounts, loans, credit cards, debt management, and interest rates to become savvy financial decision-makers.
