Student Leaders®

Providing inspiration and tools to help
tomorrow’s leaders succeed

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 Habitat for Humanity and Boys and Girls Clubs of America and participate in a national leadership summit in Washington, D.C.

Student Leaders is part of our ongoing commitment to preparing young people for a brighter future. If you or someone you know have a passion for improving the community, click here to learn more about our eligibility criteria. Our application period is now closed- we will be accepting applications for the 2018 program this fall.
