Graduates come from the communities they serve, help strengthen local relationships, and fulfill employers’ organizational goals.
We work with partners coast-to-coast
Our national and local banking partners have been instrumental in the development of the BankWork$ training and actively

How it works

Our model accelerates success
Our unique model teaches career-building, hard skills for on-the-job success in banking, and the soft skills needed to succeed anywhere.
Our comprehensive training program takes only eight weeks
Unlike other programs that take a year to complete, our curriculum is covered in eight weeks and was co-developed by employers and community-based organizations to ensure success.
Participants train for success in banking and beyond
Young adults learn how to create a positive impression, build relationships with clients and co-workers, and problem-solve. They practice speaking in front of a group, interviewing
successfully, and giving and receiving constructive feedback.
Every graduate has an opportunity to interview with our industry partners
At each graduation, participants interview for open positions with industry partners during a personalized job fair. They graduate prepared for their first day on the job, with the confidence that they can and will succeed, and are supported through mentorship as they grow in their new career.
