Bank of America Student Leaders Program

Application Deadline
Eight Weeks
Visit program website

Bank of America has an ongoing commitment to youth employment and economic mobility by helping prepare a diverse pipeline of community-minded young students to be successful in the workforce. Each year, the Student Leaders program connects more than 300 community-minded high school juniors and seniors from over 100 communities to employment, skills development and service. 

Student Leaders participate in an eight-week paid internship at a local partner nonprofit organization where they learn first-hand about the needs of their community and the critical role nonprofits play. In addition, they learn valuable civic, social, and business leadership skills. Each Student Leader attends the week-long Student Leaders Summit held in Washington, D.C. in July where they learn how government, business, and the nonprofit sector work together to address critical community needs.
