Bank of America is looking for the next generation of community leaders. If you are a junior or senior in high school and are working to make a difference in your school or community, we want to support you.
As a Student Leader, you will participate in an eight-week paid internship at a local nonprofit organization where you will learn first-hand about the needs of your community and the critical role nonprofits play. In addition, you will learn valuable civic, social and business leadership skills. Each Student Leader will attend the Student Leaders Summit held in Washington, D.C. where you will learn how government, business and the nonprofit sector work together to address critical community needs.
To become a Student Leader, you must:

Whiteboard Youth Ventures has been running the Young Entrepreneur Challenge for four years, attracting students from every part of the globe to compete in a week long startup challenge. Once students arrive on the campus of Boston University, teams are created and ideas become business concepts. Each business team will compete in a series of challenges throughout the week to gain advantages over other teams.
The YEC week culminates with a final round of presentations in front of family, friends, and community. Our Awards Ceremony is the perfect way to close out an exciting week of work and learning. We award prizes to the top performing students, as well as the teams who comes in first and second place. Winning teams win cash prizes, services, and possibly an invitation to the Whiteboard Incubator.
North Carolina House Page Program
The application will open November 2017.
This program offers young men and women the opportunity to learn about, and participate in, the legislative process of our state. It is a four day long experience that allows high school students between the ages of 15 and 18 (or 14 if already in the 9th grade) to observe firsthand how our laws are made. It provides them the unique privilege of working in the House Chamber in the midst of legislative action. Students can earn volunteer hours for their career exploring service, or a small stipend.
Youth Legislative Assembly
YLA is scheduled for April 6 - 8, 2018.
Applications and details can be found at:
Youth Legislative Assembly (YLA) is a mock legislative session where high school students voice their opinions and vote on issues concerning local, state and national government. The three-day session is patterned after the NC General Assembly. At the conclusion of YLA, a final report is drafted and distributed to the governor and legislators.
The conference allows high school students an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the workings of local, state, and national government. Active participation in YLA increases the students' confidence and ability to debate current issues. Any high school student in good standing at a public, private, charter, or home school in North Carolina is eligible to participate in YLA.
