Bank of America Student Leaders Program

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation runs an annual student leaders program that's open to all 11th and 12th graders. Since its inception in 2005, the program has recognized more than 2,200 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities. It helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and encourages them to grow into the next generation of leaders through two components:
  • A summer eight-week paid internship with a non-profit organization. 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.
  • A week-long, all-expense-paid Student Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. which introduces students to aspects of civic, social, and business leadership and provides them with the knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change. 
Applications for the program are typically due by the end of January. Interested students should click here or see Mr. Mingione or Ms. Motto for more information.
