The Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s Student Leaders® Program is accepting applications for the 2019 program through February 1, 2019. We are asking for your help to spread the word about the Student Leaders Program to the students that you know or work with or who are connected to your organization. Current juniors and seniors are eligible to apply.
Since its inception in 2005, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,700 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 Washington, D.C. from July 8-13, 2019. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the 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.
Please print and post the attached flier to spread the word about the opportunity to your students. Contact me if you would like to receive hard copy posters or an electronic announcement.
