Page 6 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 2022 Bank of America announces 2022 Greater Boston Student Leaders Paid summer internships connect local youths to career-building opportunities; Revere’s Reem Elouardi selected B ank of America announced this week that five Boston-area high school students, including one from Revere, were selected as Student Leaders® (#BofAStudentLeaders), an eight-week summer internship providing students with firsthand experience in serving their communities. These students have started their paid internship experience of workforce skills, leadership and civic engagement with local nonprofi ts. As part of the program, they will earn $17 per hour (NOTE: Pay is $17/hour or minimum wage, whichever amount is higher) and receive a Chromebook. This year, students will have the option to voluntarily participate in in-person activities as part of the internship. “Bank of America is fortunate to have such an outstanding and diverse group of young adults taking part in our Student Leaders program. They have demonstrated exemplary leadership through their academic achievement and extraREEM ELOUARDI curricular activities,” said Bank of America Massachusetts President Miceal Chamberlain. “Programs like Student Leaders are one way we can provide paid opportunities for students so they can have a positive impact in the community now as they gain valuable skills for the future.” The Class of 2022 Greater Boston Bank of America Student Leaders included Reem Elouardi, of Revere, a junior at Revere High School, who will be interning at La Colaborativa, a social service organization in Chelsea. Reem’s passion of working to bridge cultural gaps led to her selection by the U.S. Department of State to represent the United States in Germany for 10 months as a youth ambassador. Started in 2004, the Student Leaders program recognizes 300 community-focused juniors and seniors from across the United States annually. The Student Leaders are participating in programming that includes a collaborative, mentorfocused project with a local nonprofi t. Bank of America Student Leaders will also participate in a virtual Leadership Summit, delivered in partnership with the Close Up Foundation.
