Mohini Chakravorty of Woodstock is in Washington, DC, this week for the Bank of America Student Leadership Summit.
Mohini joins four other metro Atlanta students who received this year's Student Leaders honor, which includes not only the summit but also a summer internship with Teach for America.
Mohini, a rising senior at the Walker School, was chosen because she exemplifies leadership and has been very focused on service during her high school years, the program's sponsors said. She has been a Habitat for Humanity volunteer as well as putting in many hours with Girls Inc. and VOX Teen Communications. Mohini is also a Youth Advisory Board Member for 21st Century Leaders.
During the Leadership Summit, students will participate in a service learning project, a series of interactive workshops, Capitol Hill briefings, sessions on financial education and leadership development skills. The summit is intended to broaden the students’ understanding of how service creates positive change and how corporate, nonprofit and government collaboration is instrumental in community revitalization.
