U.S. Bank Awards $10,000 for Council’s Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program

By Chandra Alexandre

The Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders Program is at the core of the Bay Area Council’s commitment to education and to investing in underserved communities in the nine-county Bay Area. The program currently helps 60 low-to-moderate income (LMI) scholars realize their goal of achieving a post-high school education—often as the first one in their families to graduate from high school, let alone college.  These students possess an intimate awareness of the challenges faced by residents of LMI communities and are passionate about making a positive impact on their communities.  Through supporting their college education with scholarships, mentoring and leadership workshops, the Council and its partners are helping them become the most capable leaders that they can be—for today and for tomorrow.

The program is in alignment with US Bank’s mission and goals in education. As Lisa M. Joyner, Vice President in U.S. Bank’s West Region Community Affairs department shared in announcing the grant award, “U.S. Bank is excited to support The Bay Area Council’s Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders program.  This program is aligned with one of U.S. Bank’s funding priorities: education. We support innovative programs that help low-and moderate income students succeed in school and prepare for post secondary education.  We appreciate The Bay Area Council’s dedication and commitment to underserved youth.” The U.S. Bank contribution will help the Council further develop and improve upon tracking metrics and aid work with scholars to enhance their exposure to and leadership potentials within the business community.

Thank you, U.S. Bank, for your support!
