No we're not using onomatopoeia to sound like super heroes... But our Campbell Square Manager Romey Samtani is a hero to the students at Redondo Elementary! Romey has partnered with "Kids and the Power of Work," a program to teach a local school about a career in banking. For 8 weeks, Romey visited the students and they wrapped up the lessons with a visit to our Campbell Square office. There Romey and his staff taught them what we 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 CBF goodies.
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.
