Bank of America donates $15k to Clark College

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 on-the-job training.

Clark President Robert K. Knight said the college’s primary goal is to improve the rate of post-secondary completion.

“As a result of the alignment with Bank of America, Clark anticipates students will receive high-quality work history experiences, particularly for students with little or no previous work experience, through service learning and community engagement experiences, and opportunities for civic and community engagement, career exploration, life and soft skill development.”

Additionally, job readiness and employment opportunities will be enhanced, he added.

“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.
