2017-2018 Banking On Our Youth Applications Now Open
Article Published: September 6, 2017
Banking on Our Youth is now accepting applications for the new 2017-18 class!
Last year, 45 high school seniors from the Santa Ana Unified School District successfully graduated from our finance and entrepreneurship program. During class, students learned about the pros and cons of owning credit cards, the importance of having a savings account and much more. BOY students were also partnered with a mentor who motivated and guided them during the program. Students were exposed to experiential learning by going on exciting field trips to a bank and an upscale locale in Downtown Santa Ana. This year, BOY students will create a fictional start up business plan and will compete for scholarship prizes during a live competition at the end of the program.
We are certain that this experience is one that students will never forget and we can hardly wait to embark on this journey with them. Please help us spread the word about this amazing opportunity with your family and friends. The application deadline is Thursday, September 14th at 11:59 pm. If you have any questions, please contact us at 714-543-3711 ext. 234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
