Miami Dade College held the 10th annual Future Bankers’ Camp this summer, bolstering its commitment to promote experiential learning in finance throughout the South Florida community. More than 26 local banks and financial institutions, including BankUnited, Ocean Bank and TD Bank, joined MDC’s Center for Financial Training, supported by CareerSource of South Florida and the Cuban American National Council, to offer hands-on learning experience for high school students interested in pursuing a career in the financial services industry. The innovative program, which includes a twoweek internship and industry certification, provides local students with the opportunity to enhance their math, communication and financial literacy skills. The Future Bankers’ Camp welcomed students enrolled in Academy of Finance programs at local high schools, including Barbara Goleman Senior High School, Coral Gables Senior High School and Miami Edison Senior High. This year, the camp focused on the bank teller track. Upon completion, students were eligible to receive the American Bankers Association Bank Teller Certificate. Graduating students become eligible to begin working toward an associate degree in financial services. The Future Bankers’ Camp garnered the attention of the U.S. Conference of Mayors 85th Annual Meeting, hosted by Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine. The conference, representing more than 200 mayors from across the nation, visited MDC, Wolfson Campus to learn more about how the College is preparing students for life after college.
