For over a decade, we’ve partnered with Junior Achievement (JA) to help students learn basic financial concepts through a wide variety of initiatives, including board involvement, classroom instruction and employee fundraisers. Several times a year, CIBC employees volunteer with Junior Achievement at JA in a Day partner schools, where they spend the day teaching grade-specific programs that include topics such as net worth, savings and city life.
All-Team Volunteer Day
Every year, over 500 CIBC employees across the country participate in our All-Team Volunteer Day. Our teams visit over 3,000 students in K-8 classrooms in their communities to teach the Money Savvy program, a personal finance curriculum tailored to students at every age.
Big Shoulders Fund
Our technological services team volunteers with Big Shoulders Fund to provide schools with free technology evaluations, a benefit that saves schools time and money. Big Shoulders Fund helps children in need access quality, values-based education by providing scholarship support, leadership development programs and operational improvements for schools.
