cPort recently offered a financial literacy class to high school students from Bayside Learning Community. Bayside Learning Community provides specialized educational opportunities for students to receive a more personalized experience for academic and personal growth.

The students are currently learning about the Dave Ramsey financial plan in classes and reached out to cPort to learn more about financial literacy in a real setting. Jacky Murphy, Senior Branch Manager at our Middle St. branch, gave a presentation covering banking basics, financial institutions, credit and debit cards, the difference between a bank and credit union, and financial management tips. The following week, the students walked over to visit cPort’s newest branch at 35 Middle St. for a tour. This included a tour of the first and second floor, the employee offices, the vault, and the teller line. The students even got to end the tour with snacks in our conference room.

At cPort, our staff are always open to opportunities to provide financial literacy education! We visit outside groups to provide on site workshops and also enjoy hosting groups at our branches. If your class or group is interested in exploring financial literacy education with cPort, please email [email protected] or call 1-800-464-0253 for more information.
