Let’s build something together
Houston recently surpassed Los Angeles and New York as the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the nation. It's also the Energy Capital of the World and home to the largest medical center in the world, a combination that offers a unique opportunity to create a pipeline for jobs in our low-income communities. Bank of America is doing our part in multiple ways, including working with historically black colleges to create programs that help students complete the education and training necessary to compete and succeed in today's workforce. We continue to fund summer youth programs, connecting 16-to-24-year-olds with jobs to earn money and work in fields of interest. We also support numerous nonprofits that help individuals and families in Houston plan for greater economic mobility through access to food, shelter and other fundamental needs. We're a resilient and close community here, leaning on one another through challenging times, not so long ago from Hurricane Harvey and now through the health crisis. The spirit of volunteerism is alive here, and we're putting our resources to work, helping our nonprofits in every way possible.
