Cleveland STEP Students Learn to Code with the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland


For their December session, Cleveland STEP students explored careers in information technology and STEM and participated in a coding exercise led by Elle Benak, Education and Museum Outreach Associate with Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (Cleveland Fed).

Ms. Benak began the session with an overview of the Federal Reserve system. As a District Bank, the Cleveland Fed provides cash services—counting, verifying, and distributing money— to banks and financial institutions.

Cleveland STEP students learned about the many career possibilities at the Cleveland Fed including treasury services, supervision and regulation, law enforcement, community development, research, and even real estate services. With over 22,000 employees, 1,000 of which work in Cleveland, it’s no wonder that the Federal Reserve Bank has career opportunities covering a myriad of skills and education levels to handle such a broad financial system.
