Bell Bank is bringing access to financial education directly to community and neighborhood events through its mobile Financial Empowerment Center, nicknamed the “Big Blue Bus.” Our Big Blue Bus will travel to neighborhoods this summer, partnering with various local nonprofits to host one-day financial education outreach events, providing resources that help individuals and families on their journey to financial wellness.
Bell leaders hosted a ribbon cutting for the new Financial Empowerment Center on June 7 at our headquarters in Fargo, N.D. After the ribbon cutting, the bus opened to begin its service – and when the bus comes to your community, you’re welcome to come aboard!
Neighbors in the community can “hop on the bus,” which has been fitted up inside for access to online and in-person financial education and guidance, including:
- Help accessing and understanding a credit report
- Credit advice and counseling
- Professional financial guidance
- Presentations on budgeting, home ownership and more
- Information on online fraud, security and identity theft
- Education about bank accounts, tools and services
- Access to job postings on the Bell website
