This summer, Bank of America is helping five students with investing – in their futures, that is.

Shoreline’s own Izabella (Izzy) Davis, along with Seattle-area’s Grace Chen, Rachel Coskey, Danielle Scanes, and Jessica Wells were the dream team chosen for Bank of America’s Student Leaders eight-week, paid internship program, which helps develop the next generation of local leaders by recognizing community-minded high school students and connecting them to employment, professional development and service opportunities.

Since June, Izzy has been interning with Seattle Goodwill, working on numerous projects from research and writing, to helping put on events and learning the general operations of a nonprofit. The other four, young women have been completing internships at other local organizations including: Mentoring Works, Treehouse, Housing Hope and Imagine Housing.

Bank of America knows how important early employment opportunities are in preparing youth for success in today’s competitive workforce. Young people who work tend to have lower drop-out rates, are more likely to set and pursue career goals, and display an increased overall lifetime earning potential. By receiving a paycheck, these teens also learn the value of financial management and personal savings at an early age.

Each of these individuals has an incredible story of accomplishment, perseverance and desire to give back to their communities that helped them become Student Leaders.
