WBA believes in banking as a career. That’s why we’re supporting a Milwaukee-area effort to provide banks with trained, enthusiastic, and job-ready front-line employees through BankWork$. The eight-week vocational training program is offered by Employ Milwaukee with support from BankWork$, WBA, and Journey House.

BankWork$ trains young adults from low income and minority communities for lasting careers in the financial services industry. BankWork$ classes are free for participants. The classes provide training in the skills needed for jobs as tellers, customer service representatives, and personal bankers. BankWork$ also offers job interview practice, job placement assistance, and ongoing coaching and mentoring to help with career advancement.

An introductory meeting will be held on October 25 in Milwaukee. If you have any questions regarding the program, contact WBA’s Patty Rogers via email
