Connecting young people to work experiences and professional mentorship

Since 2010, Bank of America has funded 20,000 jobs for youth. These experiences primarily benefit underserved youth who can most use the opportunities. This year, here in Chicago, that includes four teens who are building vital job skills and professional networks for the future through an internship at the Gately Indoor Track & Field Center. It’s just one way we’re working to advance racial equality and economic opportunities in the communities we call home.

We’ve also connected the interns with Bank of America Chicago Marathon Executive Race Director Carey Pinkowski for a yearlong mentorship to help them explore career paths. “I think I’ll learn a lot from these kids,” Mr. Pinkowski shared, “and hopefully they learn from me.”

Let’s build something together

When our communities are faced with adversity, we're there to answer the call. This was particularly true when the health crisis hit home, and hard. We took action providing significant relief funds to frontline caregivers for medical equipment and materials to help them combat the virus and support families affected. Relief was targeted in communities of color, who have seen disproportionately high rates of impact. Additional grants were made to the local tech industry to innovate solutions through the pandemic and support the economic stability of startup businesses. To help kids stay in school, we worked with city colleges across Chicago to provide emergency funds for students at risk of dropping out. Moving forward, we're focusing our efforts on initiatives that accelerate economic recovery for Black and Latinx communities and supporting long-term change.
