TCLI is under contract with Bank of America to manage their Neighborhood Builder® and Student Leaders® awards competitions. The Student Leaders® program connects young leaders with employment that helps to give them the necessary tools and resources they need to advance. Through the Student Leaders® program, high school juniors and seniors step outside of the classroom to contribute service in their own communities and beyond. Student Leaders® are awarded paid summer internships with local nonprofit organizations and participate in a Student Leadership Summit held in Washington, D.C.

Being in a learning community with the diverse leaders I met through The Center for Leadership Innovation was incredibly empowering. It inspired me to be more courageous in my own leadership and decision making, while constantly reaching out to others to get their best ideas.
