CapitalOne Bank’s Student-Run Bank Branch program is a community initiative in low to moderate income areas that provides high school seniors with essential youth development opportunities and a unique financial education. The program has helped high school seniors develop career awareness, connect with industry professionals and acquire real-world experience by giving them the opportunity to work as student bankers. In September 2011, the Parkdale High School branch was the fourth CapitalOne Bank Student-Run Bank Branch to open.
