Bank of America recently selected two Treasure Coast high school students for Student Leaders, an eight-week paid summer internship that provides students with experience serving their communities. The students will develop leadership and workforce skills while working for local nonprofit House of Hope, all while earning $17 per hour.
This year’s Student Leaders are Jasmine Juan-Felipe and Jasmine Nunez, who both reside in Palm City.
Juan-Felipe is a Martin County High School student with a commitment to helping youth living in foster care and group homes. She works with the Police Athletic League of Martin County to mentor and guide struggling youth. Juan-Felipe is also involved with the 10th Street Community Center of Stuart, Project Lift, and Nathan’s Farm Camp.
Nunez is a student at Clark Advanced Learning Center who dedicates her time to serving Martin County’s elderly. During the holiday season, she travels to local nursing homes to play songs on her piano and bring cheer to the residents. Nunez also tutors students at Indian River State College, as she loves the challenge of making a difficult subject easier to understand.
