YWCA's BankWork$ prepares low-income job seekers for banking positions as a first step on the career ladder in the financial services industry.

BankWork$ consists of 8 weeks of free industry-specific job training with a strong customer service and sales focus followed by direct job placement into positions at partner banks and credit unions. BankWork$ provides instruction, career navigation, coaching, and mentoring for up to one year after placement.

BankWork$ recruits low-income people who are furthest away from opportunity and have an interest in customer service in the financial service industry. BankWork$ teaches role-specific banking skills for a lasting career. Banking skills are taught in a setting that replicates the workplace and includes weekly participation from bank recruiters and executives. Participants also receive job placement assistance and career coaching to succeed in the workplace, allowing them to retain their positions and to take advantage of advancement opportunities.

Currently BankWork$ operates in Seattle, Auburn, Bellevue, White Center, and is offered online.
