Let’s build something together

Bank of America partners with nonprofit organizations in New York City’s five boroughs and Westchester County to address the pressing needs of the community. To help New Yorkers in need, we support hunger relief agencies that provide millions of meals and other essential items and work with partners addressing the inequities of access to healthcare. To advance economic security for our most vulnerable and diverse neighbors we support skill-building programs through local colleges and nonprofit organizations that lead to better job opportunities. And, we continue to work with partners helping small and minority-led businesses who are facing enormous challenges. As New Yorkers, we are a resilient community because we pull for each other, together.

A summer to build on

In New York City, we’ve partnered with the country’s largest public school system to prepare students for rewarding careers. Since 2012, with the support of Bank of America, the New York City Department of Education’s summer enrichment and paid internship program has provided real-world education and training for more than 1000 rising high school juniors and seniors. Participating students gain exposure to the fields they are studying in school, develop technical and employability skills, strengthen their professional network, earn college credit and ward off summer learning loss.

Girl Scouts of Greater New York: The next generation of women leaders

Each year, Girl Scouts of Greater New York serves more than 32,000 girls ages 5 to 17 through its programs. One of those is the Leadership Institute, an intensive program that accepts a few hundred applicants every year and provides them with everything from college prep to professional development to access to career role models. Open to Girl Scouts in grades 6 to 12, the Leadership Institute features workshops, real-world projects, internships, job shadowing and more — all designed to build leadership skills. In 2020, the Leadership Institute went virtual with the support of Bank of America. It has since adopted a hybrid model that combines in-person, recorded and virtual events. Now the bank is helping with program enhancements, including career guidance from female bank employees and support for the Business & Entrepreneurship track and badge.
