Summer may still feel far away, but the deadline is fast approaching for civic-minded teens in Northern Nevada to apply for the second annual Bank of America’s Student Leaders program – which provides PAID summer internships at local nonprofits. Last summer, the Student Leaders worked at PBS Reno/KNPB. BofA selects two local high school juniors and seniors for the program, which also includes attending a leadership summit in Washington DC with hundreds of other Student Leaders from other states. The program is part of the bank’s investment into education and workforce development for young adults and others from disadvantaged backgrounds who may not otherwise get exposure to job and leadership experience. It’s never too early to start thinking about paid summer internships and experience. The 2020 application is open now through January 31!

STEP2 Named as the first Bank of America Neighborhood Champion for its Work to Help Break the Cycle of Addiction in Families New Program Provides $50,000 and Access to Virtual Leadership Training RENO, Nev. — Bank of America today announced the launch of its Neighborhood Champions program in Northern Nevada, an invitation-only program for nonprofits who are poised to take their work to the next level. STEP2 was selected as its inaugural awardee for its work breaking the cycle of addiction in families. As part of the new program, STEP2 will receive $50,000 in grant support and an opportunity to participate in virtual leadership training on topics ranging from human capital to financial sustainability by experts in the nonprofit sector. Since 1986, STEP2 has employed a holistic treatment program to break the cycle of addiction and help individuals and families chart a path toward self-sufficiency. This program focuses on basic life skills and building emotional, physical, and financial well-being to help clients break free from patterns and environments that perpetuate addiction, as well as providing access to housing, employment resources, family reunification and childcare. Since inception, STEP2 has helped more than 4,000 clients and has average success rate of 50 percent, compared to the national success rate of 17 percent. Funds will be used to help women achieve sobriety, gain employment and rebuild family relationships. “We’re thrilled to bring the Neighborhood Champions program to Northern Nevada,” said Andrew Diedrichsen, Bank of America Reno Market President. “STEP2’s comprehensive approach to addiction treatment helps move people onto a path of personal and financial stability.” “We are incredibly grateful to Bank of America for awarding STEP2 the Neighborhood Champion grant,” said Mari Hutchinson, STEP2’s Chief Executive Officer. “Funding received through this grant will have a generational impact as we work to break the cycle of addiction in families. In short, we will help them create a life they never thought to be possible.” Neighborhood Champions is one more way Bank of America invests into Northern Nevada. Local bank employees volunteer approximately 2,000 hours to community causes, and have awarded more than $150,000 to local nonprofits this year.
