Bonner Leaders Program

President Emeritus Bart Darrell ’84 visits with the Bonner Leaders

The bulk of those hours are spent at an identified community partner organization. For the remainder, students participate in leadership training and other skill-building workshops. Students receive an hourly work-study stipend in exchange for their time, as well opportunities to participate in Bonner network conferences. More information can be found at:
