“Banker for the Day” at Regents Bank Vancouver
Our Vancouver, Washington office works closely with their local Boys & Girls Club to serve and mentor youth in the community. Their office recently hosted nine-year old Jo’siah and provided him the opportunity to be a “Banker for the Day.” He observed the staff perform their duties and interact with clients, and even rolled up his own sleeves for some hands-on banking experience..
Jo’siah was given the “Regents Treatment,” which consisted of lunch with our employees and an Easter basket filled with goodies for a job well done. Following his visit, Kaitie Swengel, the Boys & Girls Club Coordinator, sent an email thanking the staff for making Jo’siah’s day so special, stating “The kid can’t stop smiling!”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington seek to provide a positive environment, quality programs and lifelong learning skills for all school age youth in Vancouver and its surrounding areas, with special concern for those coming from disadvantaged circumstances. Instead of walking the streets or being home alone, youth come to the Club where trained professionals provide: a safe environment for kids to have fun and be themselves; constructive programs that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits; and supportive relationships that help build young people’s self-esteem.
We enjoyed having you work with us, Jo’siah, and we think you have what it takes to be a great banker someday.
