LAS VEGAS – As part of Nevada State Bank’s commitment to provide financial education to the communities it serves, the bank recently partnered with both Olive Crest and the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority (SNRHA) to provide financial training for local teens and adults.
Nevada State Bank’s volunteers will work with Olive Crest to teach students between the ages of 15 and 18 the basics of banking and credit management, in addition to counseling them on making smart choices about money in their future.
“Our goal for each Olive Crest kid is that they become independent, productive and thriving adults,” said Douglas Coombs, executive director of Olive Crest. “Through our partnership with Nevada State Bank and the Financial Literacy program, teens getting ready to ‘age out’ of the foster care system will be equipped with the skills to open a checking account, rent an apartment, purchase a car and save for their future. We are beyond grateful for this partnership and for NSB’s significant investment in our kids’ futures.”
Nevada State Bank also began to implement its “Train the Trainer” program for the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority this past September. The goal of this program is to teach key staff within the organization how to educate their clients through on-site counselors and teachers.
“Nevada State Bank has a strong commitment to both of these organizations,” noted Drew Zidzik, senior vice president and community relations manager for Nevada State Bank. “Each year we continue to increase our number of volunteers and volunteer hours to help children and adults throughout the state make smart choices about their money.”
