The Private Bank Continues to Commit Itself to Junior Achievement
Bank Employees Return to Teach More Youth the Importance of Personal Finance
The Private Bank of California partnered, once again, with Junior Achievement of Southern California (JASoCal) to execute a ‘JA Day’ program. The Bank volunteers dedicated a day to educating youth on the value of personal finance as part of the program. JASoCal’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy and The Private Bank is proud to actively contribute to those efforts.
JASoCal is a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating students about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness, through experiential, hands-on programs. Founded locally in 1954, as part of JA Worldwide, JASoCal programs will reach more than 90,000 students in Southern California this year through volunteer support from partners like The Private Bank of California.
The Bank volunteers were paired with classrooms of about 25 students at the Mendez Learning Center near Downtown L.A., where they facilitated five lessons on JA Personal Finance. The session topics included 'Plan to Earn', 'Saving for Life', 'The Budget Game', 'Importance of Credit Choices', and 'Protect Against Fraud'.
“I can’t wait to go home and share some of the lessons I learned with my Dad,” one student told Meredith Esarey, Vice President Relationship Manager at the Culver City Branch. The students responded very well to the lessons and enjoyed the learning experience.
“It was a joy to once again be a part of ‘JA Day’,” said Sergio Sepulveda SVP/Relationship Manager at the Bank. “Our team of volunteers had a wonderful and fulfilling experience. We look forward to facilitating more ‘JA Days’ in the future."
