Your Generosity Can Change a Life

JVS BankWorks Client
BankWork$® graduate Joselyn Cuevas is thriving in her career as a Branch Manager at Bank of the West. She consistently outperforms her goals, supports her colleagues, and works diligently to care for the underserved in her community. But this wasn’t always Joselyn’s reality—five years ago, she was alone, unemployed, and fearful for her future.

Joselyn is the daughter of immigrants who came to the U.S. without money or resources. She says she gets her work ethic from her father, who started a gardening service when he arrived to put food on their table and a roof over their heads. And he continues to work full-time to support his family and future generations. “He reminded us to be grateful,” said Joselyn, “and he taught us you only get out what you put in.”

To this day, the training Joselyn received from JVS SoCal’s BankWork$ program continues to inspire her. She has made it part of her mission to help the people in her community—the City of Compton—get the banking services they deserve by offering financial literacy training and working with entrepreneurs to support their success. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to give back and share what I’ve learned,” said Joselyn. I can’t thank JVS SoCal enough—and all the donors who support people like me to start new careers.”
