Providing financial literacy is just one way Webster Bank is living up to the communities it serves. Webster once again partnered with Junior Achievement for “JA in a Day.” A team of more than 50 Webster bankers participated on April 30 at the Tinker School in Waterbury, Conn.

The volunteers taught the JA curriculum – which aims to bring financial literacy programming to children in a fun and accessible way – to more than 600 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Webster believes that the earlier today’s students learn basic financial knowledge and skills, the more opportunity they will have to thrive in adulthood. This is a personal investment as well as a financial commitment by our bankers to do what matters most.
