COMMUNITY AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

Bank of the West launched its Community Ambassador Program in 2016. This unique program embedded one of our team members within a nonprofit for a full year and supported the organization with knowledge, community networks, and professional skills to achieve greater social impact. The benefits were reciprocal. Our Ambassador provided insights that informed our ongoing community development efforts and ways we could be a stronger corporate partner.
