Para Los Niños will celebrate Bank of America at our 2019 Annual Benefit on May 15th. As our Corporate Partner of the Year, Bank of America will be honored for their support and partnership of PLN children and youth.
Since 1992, Bank of America has contributed more than $400,000 in philanthropic support and welcomed dozens of Para Los Niños youth from our Youth Workforce Services program to obtain internships at their various offices each year. Pictured above are five of our PLN youth who were able to gain invaluable work experience and grow through this opportunity.
“Throughout my weeks there, I improved my communication skills and developed teamwork skills – which I later learned is a very important factor to keep everything running smooth,“ shared Yuliza Santana, Para Los Niños Youth Workforce Services youth, of her internship experience. “I was also able to save up money from my earnings to help pay for expenses like books, school supplies, and dorm essentials needed for my upcoming school year. The Bank of America internship gave me the tools necessary to feel confident and ready to start my first year at Cal Poly Pomona.“
Thank you Bank of America for believing in our children, youth, and families. We are so grateful for you support and look forward to honoring your commitment to the youth of Los Angeles.
