The Bonner Leader Program is looking for current students interested, or experienced in community-based work. Bonner Leaders are Allegheny students committed to working with local agencies in order to meet needs in the community. Bonner Leaders are placed with a local nonprofit organization for a two-year commitment. Bonner Leaders work to recruit volunteers, develop programs for their site, 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 8–10 hours a week.

Bonner Leaders serve up to 900 hours in the course of two years and have the opportunity to:
• Serve at least two academic years and one summer of service (the first summer commitment is in Meadville with the opportunity for a second elsewhere). Summer hours include 7–8 weeks of 35 hours per week at a local or away nonprofit.
• Participate in regular meetings and leadership training — three times a month.
• Participate in a fall overnight retreat and a one-day spring training.

Please contact Nicola Mohan, Bonner Program coordinator in Civic Engagement in the Allegheny Gateway, by email at to receive more information. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and can be found here.
