Created in 2006 by the Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation and developed by the banking sector, BankWork$® is an industry-recognized training program that has resulted in nearly 2,000 graduates landing service-related jobs at financial institutions in 14 cities across the U.S.  BankWork$® strives to help meet the talent needs of participating financial institutions while assisting those with barriers to employment become qualified candidates for tellers, customer service representatives, and personal bankers.
