Fifth Third Bank (Georgia) employees volunteered to provide assistance to students from Camp Creek Middle school in Atlanta as they spent the day in a simulated business environment. On September 18th, several Fifth Third Bank employees committed over 120 hours of service to over ninety 6th grade students providing financial education, coaching, and small business technical assistance.
JA BizTown creates an opportunity for students to interact within a simulated economy and take on the role of employee, tax payer, and consumer. During the visit to JA BizTown, students receive job assignments and work in teams at their assigned business to try and generate a profit. Fifth Third Bank volunteers served as business consultants for the day, coaching a group of students through the decisions and tasks they need to complete. This is one of many ways Fifth Third Bank is able to demonstrate its commitment to financial empowerment. At Fifth Third Bank, we believe that lives are improved when people have the knowledge and tools to make wise financial decisions. Fifth Third’s L.I.F.E. “Lives Improved through Financial Empowerment®” programs deliver financial education to people at all ages and stages of life.

Congratulations Fifth Third!
