Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
Comerica and CCEE are partnering to provide financial literacy training to teachers in low-to-moderate-income areas of Riverside, San Bernardino and the Inland Empire.
Training features CCEE’s awarding-winning MoneyWiseTeen program, which provides a broad range of tools illustrating the importance of financial literacy in today’s complex global economy.
“We are honored to extend our existing relationship with Comerica into this important and underserved region of California,” noted William Coffin, CCEE Chairman. “The program will be taught through EconWorks, CCEE’s new online teaching platform.”
EconWorks opens up economic and financial literacy teaching to a vast number of teachers across the state. The online format provides teachers important automated tools, such as pre- and post-testing to measure academic comprehension and improvement, as well as targeted tools to meet an individual student’s needs.
“Comerica welcomes the opportunity to be part of the teacher training initiative to improve the communities where we live and work,” said Otis Watson, CRA Market Manager at Comerica. “We do this in many ways, including supporting our employees to volunteer in community and educational outreach.”
Comerica Incorporated is a financial services company headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and strategically aligned by three business segments: The Business Bank, The Retail Bank, and Wealth Management. Comerica focuses on relationships, and helping people and businesses be successful.
