Let’s build something together
Bank of America has been a long-time advocate for workforce development and job creation within the Portland Metro region and Southwest Washington. We partner with local leaders and organizations at the intersection of education and economic development to help connect individuals with secure family-wage careers. These efforts encompass skills development, education on viable career paths and networking programs that bring Portland’s major employers together with local students and talent from historically marginalized communities.
To further support advancing economic mobility in our region, we work with local organizations to address food insecurity as well as provide access to affordable housing and healthcare to our community members in need. And to support the region’s vital small businesses, we provide financial mentorship to entrepreneurs throughout the region. We address these pressing community needs through philanthropy, strategic partnership and by mobilizing our employees to provide thousands of volunteer hours each year.
