BANK OF AMERICA Student Leaders Program
I am pleased to announce that our Student Leader program is now open for applications through January 31st, 2014.
Since its inception in 2004, 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:
· An eight-week paid summer internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank; in Broward, this organization is the YMCA of Broward County. 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 Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 13-18, 2014. 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.
This opportunity is available to eligible high school juniors and seniors. To learn more about the program or for students to apply, please visit [ http://www.bankofamerica.com/studentleaders ]www.bankofamerica.com/studentleaders.
