In the Garden State, student leaders work closely with Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey to provide administrative support and help shape the experiences of local children engaged in local chapters. Under the program, students earn $17 per hour and receive a Chromebook.

The Student Leaders program dates back to 2004. According to Bank of America, it provides hands-on career development opportunities and experiences to 300 community-minded high school and senior students each year.

“It’s a win-win for New Jersey. So many organizations need young talent to help serve our communities. With the Student Leaders program, we’re able to pair up some of the best and brightest students of New Jersey with nonprofit jobs that will really make an impact,” said Alberto Garofalo, President of Bank of America New Jersey. “Young adults are the future of our state, and programs like Student Leaders are a way to provide paid opportunities that help pave the way for the next generation of the local workforce.”

BofA said current student leaders are halfway through the program. Entrants complete an application process and are selected for their leadership, background, passion and commitment to local New Jersey communities, according to Bank of America.

“We are thrilled to have this year’s student leaders working alongside our dedicated youth club staff throughout northern New Jersey,” said Susan Haspel, state director of Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey. “Their perspective has been invaluable, and through our partnership with Bank of America, we can help provide them with important leadership training and hands-on work experience.”
