Century Bank Hosts a Group of Blind and Visually Impaired Students from the Carroll Center for the Blind
Century Bank, New England’s largest family run bank, hosted a group of blind and visually impaired teenagers to give them an inside look at the world of banking and offer guidance about money management.
On Thursday, July 23, 2015, Century Executive Vice President, Linda Sloane Kay, hosted six blind and visually impaired teenagers, who attended the summer work program (Real World of Work) from the Carroll Center for the Blind. The teens came to Century Bank to cash their very first paychecks. Ms. Kay, who is a member of the Sloane family that founded and runs Century, gave an overview of money management and a tour of the Century branch in Newton Centre.
The Carroll Center provided a stipend to the participants in their six-week Real World of Work program, which featured jobs in various industries, including medical, food service and retail. Century Bank helped familiarize students with banking basics, including checking and savings accounts and the pros and cons of credit cards.
