The Ocean Bank Teen Center resides inside the Alex Rodriguez Educational center located at the Hank Kline Club.
The Teen Program at our Hank Kline Club is now in its fourth year. During the school year, teens abide by the After-School curriculum but also delve into other issues such as financial literacy, job shadowing, and career enrichment. The Teen Program provides homework assistance, career preparedness activities, field trips, guest speakers and a structured environment for teens in order to maximize their participation and enjoyment.
This past year, the teens experienced being on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (simulated at FIU’s State Farm Financial Literacy Lab), learning about the U.S. banking system at the Federal Reserve Bank in Doral and aspiring to become future chefs and restaurant managers at the local Olive Garden Restaurant. These real-life field trip experiences were made possible from Taco Bell Foundation for Teens and State Farm Insurance Companies Foundation.
The Teen Program runs throughout the year. Contact the Hank Kline Club for more information.
