Bilingual Workforce

Our signature workforce program  “Reaching New Heights is creating a pipeline of bilingual talent for the banking industry. Our program prepares underemployed and unemployed diverse candidates in resume development, interviewing skills and customer service – and matches vetted candidates with employers in the financial services industries such as banks, insurance companies and credit unions to diversify the financial workforce.


Through our highly-successful workforce development program, our graduates have landed full time jobs at major financial institutions such as BB&T Bank, PNC, MECU, Wells Fargo, Priority Financial Services, and New York Life Insurance Company.

Our graduates are earning between $9,000-$30,000 more in wages as a result of our program,  plus benefits, including health insurance, 401K and paid sick and vacation days.  The Foundation’s impact video features two participant testimonials:
