Bank of America Student Leaders Program
Since 2004, Student Leaders has been part of their ongoing commitment to youth employment and economic mobility. Preparing a diverse pipeline of community-minded young students with the leadership training they need to be successful in the workforce is vital to Bank of America's approach to responsible growth and helps to build thriving communities. Every year, through their Student Leaders program they help connect 225 community-minded high school juniors and seniors to employment, skills development, and service. They're awarded paid summer internships with local nonprofits such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Habitat for Humanity and participate in a national leadership summit in Washington, D.C. The Student Leaders Summit focuses on skill-building and creating a more civically engaged society.
