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

Kirkland’s own Jessica Wells, along with Seattle-area’s Grace Chen, Izabella (Izzy) Davis, Danielle Scanes, and Rachel Coskey were the 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 July, Jessica has been interning with Imagine Housing, 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, Seattle Goodwill, Housing Hope and Treehouse.
