The Bonner Leader Program is looking for current students interested in compensated community-based service work. Bonner Leaders are placed with a local nonprofit organization for at least a two-year commitment and provide much-needed support for the agency. It’s a great opportunity to have a service-oriented internship that provides students with practical, real-life experience.

Bonner Leaders receive financial compensation through work-study funds for a commitment of 8 to 10 hours a week and participate in reflection and development training. Bonner Leaders serve up to 900 hours in the course of two years and have the opportunity to Serve two academic years and at least one summer of service (the first summer commitment is in Meadville). Summer hours include eight weeks of 35 hours per week at a local or away nonprofit.
Please contact Ellen Bach, Bonner Program coordinator in Civic Engagement in the Allegheny Gateway, by email at or by phone at (814) 332-5318, to receive more information. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 start dates and can be found at this link.
