InMenlo Flash

Summer seems far away, but the deadline is fast approaching for civic-minded local teens to apply for Bank of America’s Student Leaders program which provides paid summer internships at local nonprofits.

Last summer, Student Leaders worked at  Menlo Park-based LifeMoves, which focuses on homelessness in Silicon Valley.

Bank of America selects local high school juniors and seniors for the program that includes attending a leadership summit in Washington DC with hundreds of other Student Leaders from other states.

The 2020 application is open now through January 31.
