ywca bankwork$™
teller training program:

Helping people in transition find high-quality careers and helping local banks find high-quality tellers.

Individuals looking to break into the gainful field of banking have a new opportunity through YWCA BankWork$™ —an eight-week bank teller training program that provides free instruction, job placement and ongoing career coaching to low-income job seekers with an interest in the banking industry.

YWCA's program is the first BankWork$™ training opportunity outside of California. BankWork$™ began in 2006 in Los Angeles as a partnership among the Sheri and Les Biller Foundation, Jewish Vocational Service and several banks in that community. In 2010, YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish was selected as the first BankWork$™ training site outside of California.

Program eligibility requirements:

  • At least 18 years old.
  • Ability to speak and write English.
  • No adult felony convictions.
  • A high school diploma or GED. 

Participants should also have basic cash-handling experience and an interest in the banking industry.
