Let’s build something together

Bank of America’s growing team along the mountains of western North Carolina partners with local academic, business, government and nonprofit leaders that connect members of underserved communities with sustainable employment. This commitment to championing financial literacy and workforce development extends to developing young leaders through targeted education, mentorship, skills development and internship programs.

We also provide sponsorship and volunteer support to community partners that ensure our most vulnerable neighbors’ food, healthcare, housing and childcare needs are met — proudly evidenced by our donation of 40 million articles of PPE to local nonprofits during the global pandemic. To empower our teammates, we have developed new approaches to staying connected, both virtually and in person, and encourage each associate to reach their full potential by bringing their authentic self to work.

A boost for local employment in Asheville

The Skills Training Employment Program (STEP), a partnership between Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and the Buncombe County Department of Health and Human Services, seeks to connect qualified candidates to open jobs, as well as provide training opportunities to local residents that want to reskill. Bank of America funds nearly half of the STEP program directly through grants as part of the bank’s $1.25 billion five-year commitment to advance racial equality and economic opportunity

Advancing Racial Equality and Economic Opportunity

The need for real progress on racial and economic inequality in the United States has been accentuated by the impact of the coronavirus on communities of color, and amplified by acts of injustice. We all have a role to play in helping move communities forward – an understanding that forms the foundation of Bank of America’s long-standing commitment to the people and communities it serves. And they’re at the heart of the bank’s $1.25 billion commitment over the next five years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity.
