We connect various underserved groups to the skills, resources and experience they need to succeed. By partnering with nonprofits, such as through our Student Leaders® program, we help youth reach their full potential through professional development and education. Inside our company, we promote people’s career paths, starting with how we recruit new employees and continuing with our many professional development and engagement practices.
Workforce development & education
We're committed to the economic advancement of young adults, low- and moderate-income communities, and those that deserve second chances. Our workforce development and education efforts include the way we hire, recruit and retain employees at our company, as well as our partnerships with nonprofits and local mayors.
We also work with local mayors and nonprofits to connect individuals who face barriers to employment with tools and resources for a more secure economic future. As one example, our seed funding for Unlocked Futures supports formerly incarcerated entrepreneurs who help other formerly incarcerated individuals rebuild their lives.
Young ambition takes flight
Shreya Balaji may be a young adult, but her take-action attitude has benefitted many around her home town of Sacramento. As a volunteer, tutor and role model with The Refuge, a program for underserved Sacramento youth, she encouraged self-worth and supported the creative growth of young women from homes exposed to sex trafficking and drug abuse.
Shreya’s passion for serving her community and advocating for young women led her to apply to the Bank of America Student Leaders® program. We were happy to have her as a paid intern at the Boys and Girls Club of Sacramento, where even more at-risk youth benefitted from her mentoring expertise.
