Bank of America Student Leaders Program
Dear Community Partner,
Bank of America is looking for tomorrow’s community leaders today. We are asking for your help to identify outstanding young people who are passionate about making a difference in our community.
Since its inception in 2004, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 1,400 exemplary high school juniors and seniors with a passion for improving their communities. The program’s goal is to cultivate and develop the next generation of community leaders through two components:
- An eight-week paid internship in the summer of 2011 with selected nonprofit organizations designed to provideopportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Nonprofit Host Organization.
- A week-long all-expense paid Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., July 17-22. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the Summit introduces students to aspects of civic, nonprofit and business leadership and provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change.
I am delighted to attach this flyer describing The Bank of America Charitable Foundation Student Leaders program, an exciting component of our signature philanthropic program, the Neighborhood Excellence Initiative®. The flyer provides general information about the program and will direct potential applicants to the Bank of America Charitable Foundation website for more information and the online application.
Please note the application deadline of January 12th for the 2011 Student Leader Program.
In order to spread the word about the opportunities available to many of your members, partners, and affiliates, please distribute in the manner appropriate for your organization (email, electronic newsletter, website, etc.). Posters are also available to help advertise the program. If you would like posters, please contact me and I will send them to you.
