Tamera was referred to the Youth Job Center by the City of Evanston Youth & Young Adult Outreach Team in January of 2018. Tamera was 19 years old and after talking and spending time with Tamera, the YJC staff quickly recognized that Tamera was committed to her success. The YJC staff also noticed that Ms. Boston was very bright, educated, well spoken, and had a deep desire to go into the banking profession. YJC connected Tamera with Wintrust Bank in March 2018, where Tamera worked hard and built a great relationship with her peers and supervisors, and in September 2018 Ms. Boston was promoted to Universal Banker with a salary increase.

“I love my team. I have amazing and understanding co-workers that make the sometimes stressful job very much worth it.”

Congratulations to Ms. Boston! You have made us all so proud of you.
