Two Gwinnett County students earn recognition as Bank of America Student Leaders

Five area high school students, including two from Gwinnett County, have recently been selected as Student Leaders and have started paid internships for Bank of America.

According to a press release, the students will gain experience in leadership, civic engagement and workforce skills-building. Bank of America said that in light of the health concerns that remain in local communities, the program has been adapted to a virtual format, but students will have the opportunity to participate in sessions that will expose them to the vital role that nonprofits play in advancing community health, the importance of public private partnerships to advance social change, and a focus on building financial acumen.
