‘B’ BOLD: Building Bridges through Outreach Leadership Development

The Allen Peters Baldwin ‘B’ BOLD Internship Award Program is an initiative created by Clearinghouse CDFI and inspired by the values of the B Corp community to build bridges that empower and develop the next generation.

Clearinghouse CDFI, with the support and generosity of its community partners, offers this summer internship program for college-bound high school juniors and seniors from low-income families.

‘B’ BOLD Program Goal

The purpose of the program is to invest in tomorrow’s leaders. Interns will gain exposure to a professional setting, receive real life job skills, and access to positive role models. The Allen Peters Baldwin ‘B’ BOLD Internship Award Program will help empower youths from low-income areas that do not have access to the same resources and opportunities.
