Leadership doesn’t begin in the nation’s capital.
As a matter of fact, Bank of America’s leadership philosophy stresses that building the blocks of character, commitment and quality begins in neighborhoods and communities where promising youth are found.
Open to high school juniors and seniors in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties, the Bank of America Student Leaders summer intern program is accepting applications through Feb. 1. The initiative annually assigns 225 participants to paid positions at local nonprofits including Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Habitat for Humanity. Students selected for the internships also attend a national leadership summit in Washington, D.C.
“The Student Leaders program can be a pathway to success through meaningful and relevant experiences,” says Matt Elliott, Michigan market president for Bank of America. “To advance economic mobility we need to develop a more diverse and inclusive society. Year after year, Student Leaders proves it can be done.”
