You can now apply for the Bank of America Student Leaders Program. 5 teens from the Detroit area will be selected for a unique internship opportunity. The program involves an 8-week paid summer internship with Focus: Hope of Detroit. That is supplemented by a week-long leadership summit in Washington, DC where kids can meet other young people who are also on a mission to become future leaders.
