Valley National Bank Associates Volunteer for Workforce Development

On September 6th six Valley associates volunteered in support of Eva’s Village Workforce Development program in Paterson, New Jersey, also in partnership with the New Jersey Bankers Association Philanthropy Program.

The Valley Retail Bank team helped conduct mock job fairs, serving as mock interviewers to give Eva’s clients an opportunity to practice interview skills. Eva’s Workforce Development program is a volunteer driven program designed to empower, mentor and prepare Eva’s Village clients with the knowledge and tools necessary to successfully find a job. Clients also receive guidance in searching for jobs online and assistance with the actual application process. Client’s leave the program with a professional resume and accompanying documents, as well as the confidence to search for and secure a job.
