Bank of America Student Leader
For the second consecutive year, the Boys and Girls Club of Lynn received a grant from Bank of America's Student Leader program.
The program connects 230 community-minded high school juniors and seniors to employment, skills development and service. Partnerships with organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club of Lynn gives these young people a path for success and creates thriving communities that champion opportunities for the next generation.
Below is a question and answer sit down we had with Juliana.
Can you describe the Boys & Girls Club of Lynn's Mission?
They encourage the positive development and enhance the quality of life for youth in the Greater Lynn area.
Why is the Mission important to you personally?
It is important to me because of my love for children and to see that they are learning and having a fun time.
What are you most excited about learning at the Boys & Girls Club? What have you learned during your intern?
I have learned a lot of leadership experiences working at Camp Creighton and teaching them science. Being a counselor is hard. It has taught me a lot about the importance of being a leader and role model, and having responsibility for others.
What was your biggest take away from the Student Leadership Summit?
My biggest take away , is that being a student doesn't mean I can't make a difference. I now feel empowered to be able to make a change in my community even if I am not an adult.
How did you hear about the Bank of America Student Leadership Program, and why did you want to participate?
I heard about it from a list of programs online. I wanted to participate so I could learn valuable leadership skills .
I was also interested in going to Washington, D.C.
At the end of you internship, what do you hope to walk away with?
I hope to walk away with the knowledge that I can make change in my community by teaching science to the members of the Boys & Girls Club. I feel I have educated them, while making it fun. The knowledge that I have and can make a difference is the most valuable thing I have learned from my experience.
What is your dream job?
I have a few ideas what my dream job would be. I love science and working with kids, so a science teacher is a definite possibility. I also might want to do something in medicine or bio-engineering.
