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 Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Freedom School Partners 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. The 2018 Student Leader application period will begin on October 27, 2017.  

Empowering young leaders

In addition to paid summer internships, Student Leaders will participate in the 2018 Student Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. from July 8-13. This year’s summit will focus on building a more civically engaged society and pathways to employment. Check out the stories and videos below to see how young leaders learn about how government, the private and public sectors intersect to address community issues while they connect with peers, and find additional inspiration to strengthen their communities.
