Testimonials:

“JVS took my family from low-income to middle-class income. Thank you very much for that.” – Osman, Bank Career Training Program graduate

“I worked for 10 years in a bank in Peru. I was sure that because of my experience, getting a job as a bank teller in the United States would be easy. I sent dozens of applications to banks of all sizes, and after a long wait, finally was invited to interview, but I was not hired. I decided I needed a training school and found the JVS Bank Teller Training Program. Here, I refreshed and upgraded my knowledge of Bank’s products and services, I learned how to write a winning resume, and how to conduct a successful interview.This year I got a job—indeed I got a career that is a life-changing event. I am now a Customer Service and Sales Representative with East Cambridge Savings Bank.” -Pedro Espinoza, Bank Career Training Program graduate
