NM teens awarded bank internship

Isabella Campbell

Amy Biehl High School seniors Isabella Campbell and Adrian Chavez have been chosen to participate in a paid virtual internship program with New Mexico Bank of America, a news release said.

The New Mexico Bank of America Student Leaders program lasts eight weeks and pays interns $17 an hour and a Chromebook laptop. The students will work with Junior Achievement of New Mexico, a nonprofit economic education organization, doing collaborative, mentor-focused projects, helping to generate grant funding, identify volunteer sources and communicate with donors, volunteers and other stakeholders of the organization. They will also take part in a virtual summit in partnership with the Close-Up Foundation to participate in Stanford University’s Young Democracy at Home program.

Adrian Chavez

Campbell and Chavez, the only two New Mexico students selected among 300 scholarship recipients nationally, both have above a 3.5 grade point average. Campbell has been actively involved with women’s issues through her participation with Crossroads for Women, a comprehensive service for formally incarcerated women, for the past six years through the Girl Scouts. Here she was able to set up a virtual reunification project providing recording equipment to the women that enables them to send messages to their children and families. Chavez comes from a family of immigrants and has been active in his school’s chapter of social justice reform organization New Mexico Dream Team since freshman year. He went with the team to Santa Fe to advocate before state representatives for immigration and LGBTQ+ rights and racial justice.

New Mexico Bank of America also provides internship grant funding for City of Albuquerque’s Ancestral Lands Conservation Corp Department Summer Youth Program, Explora’s Career Pathways Initiative and United Way’s Tax Help NM program.
