Registration for YWCA BankWork$ training program for banking careers now open

Registration is now open for YWCA BankWork$, a free program that provides training for bank-related jobs, such as teller, customer service representative or personal banker, in eight weeks.

The program has been in place since 2011 in King and Pierce counties. This year, however, a pilot program in Snohomish County is being launched at YWCA Sommerset Village, located at 19703 68th Ave. W. in Lynnwood.

In its lifespan, the program has launched 469 banking careers in Puget Sound, with an additional 61 graduates placed in non-banking jobs, including 127 graduates last year. To read more about the program’s accomplishments, click here.
