Volunteer and Internship Opportunities for Students

Bank of america

 Preparing a diverse pipeline of community-minded young students with the leadership training they need to be successful in the workforce is vital to our approach to responsible growth and helps to build thriving communities. Every year, through our Student Leaders program we 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.

If you or someone you know have a passion for improving the community, visit here to see where the Student Leaders Program operates and learn more about our eligibility criteria. The 2019 Student Leaders application period will be open from November 11, 2018 — February 1, 2019.
