A dozen high schools students in the Lincoln Heights neighbourhood are learning to become financially savvy by taking part in Union Bank’s student-run branch program. Lincoln High School senior Priscilla Velez is one of the teens in the program.
“I not only wanted to improve my financial literacy skills, but I also wanted to improve my communication and professional skills,” Velez said.
Wendy Estrada manages the Lincoln High branch, where every transaction is conducted by trained students, but is overseen by a bank manager.
“We’re hoping by having this student run branch here provided by Union Bank, we’re able to educate students to become financially savvy and make wise financial decisions,” Estrada said.
