    Hi everyone! I was thinking about applying but tracked back the 8 weeks (from July 13-18), and it seems the program starts in mid May. Does anyone know how previous student leaders managed the 35 hours in a week during school? Thanks

    July 13-18 isn't necessarily the last week of the program. I think that it says on the website that the start date varies based on your market, so when your school ends probably plays into that. Hopefully that helps!

    July 13-18 might be the start, since the program mentions how you must be able to work until September :)

    Does anyone know how local the “local non-profit organization” is? They also mentioned something in the application abt how “to make every effort at transportation.” Does that mean they’ll provide for us transportation or?

    Does anyone know why I am not allowed to participate from Dallas county? Is there any other way I can be a BoA Student Leader?

    Isn't Dallas included in the Houston market? I remember reading that multiple cities were included in the Houston market, including Dallas and San Antonio.

    Does anyone know if there are interviews for the Houston market and how many people approximately get accepted in that market since it is pretty large?

    @browniegoldie I can confirm most of this to be true.

    I did the program last year so I'll break down what you said as much as I can.

    They don't care about stats whatsoever. People who do this program go on to attend Ivy Leagues and Community Colleges.

    I worked at the Boys and Girls Club myself, as do probably around half the markets. In short, I was a camp counselor for 7/8 weeks with minor additional projects here and there.

    I am from Connecticut, and never received an interview nor heard any information about one.

    I'd pick this program over nearly every other summer program out there beside MITES/RSI/TASPs. It's just as prestigious as those three, but if you get the opportunity to go to MIT or Cornell for free for 6 weeks you should do that. Though, keep in mind BoA's acceptance rate is lower than TASPs, so it may be harder to get into especially depending on the market.

    The 8 week period will work with when you have school. I started the day after my school year ended, so from mid June to early August. This was the average for all markets. For some, they started in May and the week in DC was their final week. For others, the week in DC was week #1. It was week #4 for me.

    You will not be working at the bank, lol.

    You are paid $15 an hour. Stipend is given to the non-profit. Do not worry about any other logistics. It is a job that pays you $15 an hour, which includes $15*35 hours for the week in DC.

    You can't miss the submit, but most markets are lenient on missing a day here or there. My friends in Jacksonville missed entire weeks no problem, but I was unable to miss two weeks I requested off.

    Yes, 40 hour weeks. I worked 8:30-4:30 with lunch at 12-1.


    Hopefully I covered almost everything. If you have any other questions about the program feel free to ask here or send me a direct message.

    @Duke47
    What advice would you give for the essays? Should I just write and then edit for word count? (I feel like this would showcase my personality more). Or do you think revising is necessary? (My problem with this is that I may try to gear my essay towards what I think the readers want to hear instead of my honest responses). Also, people who participated from other years said that they were paid $10 per hour. Do you think you were paid $15 just because of the market you were in? Or have they increased the pay since last year? Thank you!
