Bank of America Student Leaders Program - Feb 17th deadline

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s Neighborhood Excellence Initiative® is accepting applications for 2010 awards. This program recognizes and rewards individuals and organizations making a difference in communities across the country, and is divided into three categories: Neighborhood Builders®, Local Heroes and Student Leaders®.

We would like your help to spread the word about the Student Leaders Program, an exciting opportunity for high school juniors and seniors.

Since its inception in 2004, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 1,000 high school juniors and seniors identified as exemplary young people with 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 2010 eight-week paid internship with selected nonprofit organizations 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.

• A week-long all-expense paid Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. 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.

If you would like additional information regarding the Neighborhood Excellence Initiative Student Leaders program, please send an email to Please note the fast approaching application deadline of February 17th for the 2010 Student Leaders Program.

We appreciate your help to spread the word about the Bank of America Student Leaders Program.

Thank you,
