Banking on Our Youth


Banking on Our Youth exists to equip youth in the City of Santa Ana with the tools necessary to positively impact their financial well-being through education in finances and entrepreneurship as well as mentorship opportunities with seasoned professionals.


A thriving city where youth are empowered to determine the course of their financial well-being.


According to a study conducted by the Rockefeller Institute of Government back in 2004, Santa Ana may be one of the poorest and the most challenged cities in America. Our families face a daily struggle when it comes to housing, jobs, education, poverty and dependency which all directly affect their financial instability. However, this does not have to be the case for the next generation of families. Here at Templo Calvario CDC, we firmly believe that both financial stability and financial prosperity can be made possible for youth who participate and graduate from the program.

Banking on Our Youth students are exposed to the following concepts when attending class: banking services, how to choose and maintain a checking account, setting financial goals, borrowing basics, credit card pros, and cons, financing college and managing their paycheck as well as the importance of investing. Furthermore, students are paired up with our corporate volunteers throughout the course of the program for mentoring opportunities. In doing so, seasoned professionals teach students the ropes of the workforce and the soft skills essential for a successful transition into adulthood.
