Wells Fargo teaches banking basics to adult ESOL students
(Bradenton, FL-December 14, 2017) Are all banks insured? Do they all have FDIC? When is it important to use my bank card as a debit card, and when is it best to use it as a credit card? These are just a few of the questions Wells Fargo representatives addressed while teaching Hands on Banking(r) Financial Education to a group of adult students of English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) last night.

Wells at Work program consultant Jason Russ and Palmetto branch banker Diamond Pina talked with the students about why they needed a bank, factors to consider when choosing a bank, and banking basics.

Manatee Technical College received a grant from Wells Fargo through the Florida Literacy Coalition to integrate financial education with English literacy instruction. The night class is being held at Daughtrey Elementary School.
