In support of Woodbridge Township’s Reaching Individual Student Excellence (RISE) program, The Provident Bank launched a mock bank at the RISE School in an effort to encourage the importance of financial literacy for students.
“Becoming financially literate before graduation helps to ensure that they have the necessary life skills to build a career, and become successful in their adult lives,” said Linda Rockmaker, RISE Program Coordinator. “Thanks to The Provident Bank’s involvement, we are one step closer in helping our students achieve this.”
RISE is Woodbridge Township School District’s transition program created to help special education students navigate the community and to provide experiences that will make them confident in accessing community services as they transition to life after school.
With 21 branches in Middlesex County, Provident Bank is a community-oriented bank offering “commitment you can count on.”
