Since its inception in 2005, the Bank of America Student Leaders® Program has recognized more than 2,000 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities. The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:
· A summer eight-week paid internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization.
· The week-long, all-expense paid Student Leaders Summit in
from July 12-17, 2015. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation,
the Washington, D.C. Summit
introduces students to aspects of civic, social and business leadership and
provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to
create positive community change.
Five (5) students from the
community are selected to participate in this program.
