About the Bank of America Student Leaders program
For more than 15 years, Bank of America has identified standout, community-minded high school students and connected them to a paid summer nonprofit internship, and opportunities to develop further as young leaders.
In 2020, the program has been adapted to a virtual format, through which students gain perspective on the vital role that nonprofits play in advancing community health, the importance of public private partnerships to advance social change, and a focus on building financial acumen. They will engage in conversations focused on social justice, civil rights and how to build a more diverse and inclusive society and have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of their personal finances through Better Money Habits®, Bank of America’s financial wellness and education platform.
The Student Leaders program, which includes young people from a range of diverse backgrounds, reflects Bank of America’s commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity. Since 2015, Bank of America has invested $30 million to support more than 10,000 summer jobs for young people, including at-risk youth from low-income families in more than 90 communities.
