Bank of America has donated $15,000 to Clark College’s Career and Volunteer Service-Learning program to prepare more than 1,000 students with valuable on-the-job training, the school has announced.
The Clark College program is designed to align classroom learning with current community needs, promoting personal growth of college students through reflection about self, society and the future; combining experiential with academic instruction to focus on critical, reflective thinking and civic responsibility; and organizing on- and off-campus events that provide service opportunities for Clark College students, faculty and staff.
“Providing grants to local nonprofit organizations that support career readiness is part of Bank of America’s broader effort to help create economically vibrant communities,” said Roger Hinshaw, Bank of America’s president in Oregon and Southwest Washington, in a press release. “As part of that, we’re proud to support Clark College’s Career and Volunteer Service-Learning Program which helps prepare college students to enter the workforce and, in turn, support our local economy.”
