When you think of summer jobs for teenagers, taking tickets at the movie theater or babysitting come to mind. However, some Inland Empire teens will spend their summer making a positive impact in the community and getting paid for it.
Only a few days remain for civic-minded high school juniors and seniors to apply for the highly competitive Bank of America Student Leaders Program. The Student Leaders Program offers an eight week paid internship with local nonprofits such as Boys & Girls Club of Greater Redlands-Riverside and Inland Empire United Way, as well as a trip to meet Student Leaders from across the country for a week of leadership workshops and community projects in Washington D.C.
“For more than a decade, we’ve invested in young people through the Student Leaders Program — giving them work experience, helping them learn more about the role nonprofits play in addressing critical community needs, and preparing them to be future leaders in our communities, regardless of career path,” says Al Arguello, Inland Empire market president, Bank of America.
More information and applications for the 11th annual Bank of America Student Leaders program can be found here. Please feel free to reach out with questions, and if interested, I’d be happy to set up an interview with a Bank of America executive.
