Chelsea Groton Bank is proud to announce the renaming of the Bank’s community education program to Chelsea University. For over a decade, Chelsea Groton has taught financial literacy classes in bank branches, schools and community centers throughout Eastern CT and Westerly, RI, in an effort to empower individuals, families and businesses to make the financial decisions that are best for them. As part of the introduction of Chelsea University, the Bank is also announcing the introduction of a new, convenient, and interactive e-learning platform.
“Chelsea Groton Bank has always had a focus on education, for customers, employees, and members of the community. In 2004, we formally launched the Community Education program, and have had a full-time education officer on our team since,” explained Lori Dufficy, EVP, Director of Sales and Service at Chelsea Groton Bank. “As we continued to develop our community education offering, including everything from FDIC Money Smart classes, to lifestyle programs to internal training programs for our team, we felt it was the right time to take all of the individual programming under one strong umbrella. We are thrilled to continue to grow this program.”
Within the Chelsea University e-learning platform, which is powered by Enrich™, iGrad’s adaptive, personalized online financial literacy platform, customers and community members will be able to take financial courses, view instructional tutorials and how-tos, read articles, use calculators, play games, and track progress toward achieving their goals. Content topics include budgeting, student loans, mortgages, starting a business, career development and more.
“While we hope to continue to have strong attendance at the classes we offer around the community, the Chelsea University e-learning platform offers those who aren’t able to make it to an in-person class an opportunity to access important information at their own pace,” explained Miria Toth, Assistant Secretary, Community Education Officer at Chelsea Groton Bank. “We look forward to many members of the community benefitting from this convenient resource in the future.”
