Empowering Communities to Maximize Their Full Potential

As a Santa Ana and Mexican-American native, volunteering for Project Access and being able to provide my community with information on our banking products and offers has been such a rewarding experience. I have built some wonderful relationships, appreciate the volunteer opportunities and can’t wait for the next opportunity to volunteer my time. Thanks again!
