Two chosen for prestigious internship program

ALBANY, N.Y. (July 1, 2019) – A student who just graduated from Albany High School and a soon-to-be senior at Albany High School are getting paid to make our community a better place this summer.

 

Bank of America chose Jasmin Harrison, who is heading to North Carolina AT&T State University in the fall, and Kennedy Jones, a rising senior, to participate in its Student Leaders program for the summer of 2019. Student Leaders is a philanthropic program that provides young people the professional experience and leadership skills through a paid summer internship at a local nonprofit.

“This is an invaluable opportunity for our two students. Not only will they be better prepared for the workforce but they are also giving back to our local community,” said Albany High School guidance counselor Kimberly Baker.

Harrison will be interning at Habitat for Humanity Capital District and will learn about all aspects of the organization, from administration to construction. Jones will be interning at United Way of Greater Capital Region and work on resource development and marketing. Later this month, they will also attend a leadership summit in Washington D.C., joining the 300 other young people from across the country who are also participating in Bank of America’s Leaders Program.

Harrison and Jones underwent a rigorous application process before getting selected - both have averages in the 90s and have thrived in college-level, Advanced Placement classes at Albany High School.

“We recognize that building workforce skills early can help prepare a young person for long-term success,” said Jennifer MacPhee, Albany/Hudson Valley market president, Bank of America.

This summer, Bank of America is investing more than $4-million in funding to support nearly 3,000 summer jobs for teens across the country.

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves approximately 9,300 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
