The Bank of America’s Financial Center Internship Program, also known as its Consumer Jobs Program places high school senior and college freshman age students at its financial centers to help youth develop personal and professional skills. Interns learn financial literacy skills and are exposed to the banking industry.

They develop customer service skills as lobby ambassadors. They also develop an understanding of the importance of following a code of ethics and increase their risk awareness through interactions with customers.

As a part of the University of Southern California Village’s Grand Opening on August 17, 2017, the interns were invited to promote Bank of America products and services at its USC Village location.

The interns interacted with USC students, faculty and alumni throughout the event, putting into practice the customer service skills and mobile banking expertise they acquired over the summer.

This marked the fifth year of partnership between the Bank of America Financial Centers, EWDD and partnering agencies.
