Torrey Pines High School senior Richard Ni is among five teenagers from across San Diego County selected by Bank of America as Student Leaders. The program offers young people, who are engaged community citizens, an opportunity to build their workforce and leadership skills through a paid summer internship at Community HousingWorks (CHW). The Student Leaders will assist in CHW’s new e-learning program, helping student residents improve their reading skills, and in enhancing CHW’s after-school program. Following the eight-week internships, the students will participate in a Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.

“We are excited to partner with Bank of America in our eighth year participating in the Student Leaders program,” said Senior Vice President of CHW’s Achieve Programs Jorge Riquelme. “Each year, these exceptional high school students bring their passion and individual skills to CHW, helping us deepen our impact and helping them become strong leaders.” The other Student Leaders are Nicholas Rogozinski, Samantha Vu, Elena Hoffman, and Snigdha Nandipati.
