Romey Samtani, our Campbell Square Financial Center Manager, was the latest employee to partner with the KAPOW Program to teach a local school about a career in banking. Romey was paired up with Ms. Jagielski’s second grade class at Redondo Elementary. At the end of the program, the students were happy to visit our Campbell Square office to learn what CBF employees do on a day-to-day basis and how we help our customers. The kids enjoyed talking to customers who visited the teller line and helping them open new accounts. They were excited to learn how a bank operates and loved their new CBF bookbags.
KIDS AND THE POWER OF WORK (KAPOW) is a program of the National Child Labor Committee. It is a national network of business and elementary school partnerships which introduces students to career awareness through professionally developed lessons taught by business volunteers in the classroom. In addition, students make one visit to the workplace to participate in hands-on activities. KAPOW lays a foundation for young students, introducing them to work related concepts and experiences that can be continually reinforced throughout the formative years.
