Description: The article is about credit one bank login. Capital One Bank established its first student-run bank branch in New York. With guidance from Capital One Bank management and through partnerships with local universities, the high school bankers are improving their readiness for college and future careers.
This experience has impacted my life in the most extraordinary way. I’ve learned so much about the world,I have learned so much about myself through this experience. I lack confidence,that was one weakness of me. I have no self-motivation.
The program helped me socialize more. In fact,I came to this country very recently. I came in without knowing much and then this program lifted me up. This identity helped me fit myself into the school. When Capital One invested in me,it invested in my family.
We look at student banking as a youth development program. We hire students who come from different academic backgrounds with different socio-economic scales. We hire students to impact their lives. It’s not about selecting the top academic performers. It’s not numbers. It’s looking at them straight in the eyes,listening to them,following up with some recommendations from staff,and knowing this could change this child’s life.
The student-run branch is a real branch. They are run by high school seniors who are trained as tellers and relationship bankers. They are Capital One associates. This is a way for us to teach students about savings and make a way for them to put it into practice. My goal is to get them out of their comfort zone. Let them see the potential that they have.
We want to get them prepared for real-world experiences such as the workforce. We want to get them ready for college. We typically hire 10-12 student bankers at each of the four schools that we work with. The bank gives students an opportunity,they can gain work experience,it gives them the opportunity to get real life experience. It’s a real-life internship every single day for these students.
Our student bankers learn soft skills. They learn how to be prepared. They learn how to be on time. They learn how to be engaged. They learn how to dress professionally. It’s not only about the banking part. It was the guidance and mentorship.
They come from such challenging backgrounds. You hear stories of being the breadwinner in the family,and having to financially support the family. We have students who are often homeless. Sometimes they live in shelters,and they don’t come from a stable home.
It’s joyful experience. When you have a young person,when you get the word that they’ve been accepted to a school,when a child is coming from poverty,that child is guaranteed to be on a whole different trajectory.
Because of Capital One,I got into a good college,I graduated with a good degree,I’m working,I’m supporting my family. Every child who goes through this program is a different person when they come out,this program gives them opportunity to make changes to their lives. You will have the opportunity to work on something to changes lives,that is wonderful.
