Congratulations to the June BankWork$ Graduates!

Pictured left to right are: Dawanda Street, Darnesha Wilson, Evan Taylor, Nayeli Rocha, and Yesenia Delgado — graduates of the June BankWork$ class.

The June BankWork$ class has now graduated! The Wisconsin Bankers Association is proud to partner with Employ Milwaukee to bring this nationwide program to Wisconsin. BankWork$ is a free, eight-week training program to prepare participants in primarily underserved neighborhoods for retail banking careers.

This graduating class of five included Yesenia Delgado, Nayeli Rocha, Dawanda Street, Evan Taylor, and Darnesha Wilson. WBA’s Daryll Lund attended the ceremony and congratulated the graduates on their achievement.

Over the eight weeks, these students learned the hard and soft skills necessary for entry-level retail and operations positions. The program began in 2019 and has so far provided more than 4,000 graduates in the Milwaukee area the opportunity to begin a career in banking.
