The Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s Student Leaders® Program is accepting applications for the 2013 program.  In recognition of your commitment to young people, we are asking for your help to spread the word about this exciting leadership opportunity.

Since its inception in 2004, the Bank of America Student Leaders® Program has recognized more than 1,800 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities.  The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:

  • A summer eight-week paid internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization.
  • The week-long, all-expense paid Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 8-12, 2013. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the Summit introduces students to aspects of civic, social and business leadership and provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change.

The application deadline is January 25, 2013.

We have posters available to help spread the word to the young people you serve, contact us and we will send them to you.

The application is available online only and can be found here Feel free to contact us with any questions. We appreciate your help in informing young people about this opportunity – thank you for your partnership!
