Northwest Saving Supports Youth Programs

Northwest Savings Bank has contributed $7,500 to the Potter County Education Council in support of educational programs for youth in Potter, McKean, and Cameron Counties.

The money will be used to support career exploration camps scheduled for Summer 2014. These camps focus on high demand occupations for the region, with a goal of introducing area youth to career fields they may not currently be considering. This year's camp programs will focus on technical, health care, and information technology careers and will be offered in partnership with area schools, the Seneca Highlands IU9, and local industries.

Thanks to the support of organizations like Northwest Savings Bank these camps can be offered free of charge to local students. Once finalized, information on summer camp programs will be available on the Potter County Education Council website, through local media, and distributed to students through area schools.
