Bank of America Seeking High School Students for Paid Summer Internships
By Kathy Chouteau
Are you a civic-minded middle school or high school student passionate about improving your community? If so, Bank of America’s Student Leaders Program– which offers paid summer internships at local nonprofits – may be the perfect fit for you. But don’t wait for apply—The application deadline is Friday, January 29, 2021.
Bank of America is currently seeking high school students from East Bay to apply for the program’s 8-week paid internships at organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Habitat for Humanity for 35 hours per week. By completing special projects and learning the ins and outs of working in local organizations, students receive real-world leadership training that will help them be successful in their future careers. According to the financial institution, more than 300 students nationwide participate in the program each year.
The summer experience culminates with the Student Leaders Summit in Washington, DC, which organizers say “focuses on building skills and creating a more civically engaged society.”
In light of COVID-19 health guidelines, the Student Leaders program was converted to a virtual format last summer. In-person program events will follow local / national guidelines for gatherings, so travel plans may change accordingly.
