About Our Program

The VBA is committed to providing banks with the resources needed to build and develop strong teams of banking professionals. This past summer, the VBA piloted our Summer College Internship Program with seven banks across the Commonwealth. Our goal was to create an experience that leads students to seek out careers in banking upon graduation. Based on the feedback we received from the interns at the end of the summer, 93% said that the internship made them more interested in the banking industry.

Our program is a turnkey experience for banks who don’t currently have a formal internship program and it provides resources to add enrichment and further exposure to the programs many banks already have in place. We strive to support a meaningful experience not only for the college students who participate, but also for the hosting banks. In addition to program templates and suggestions for engagement, the program includes training and networking opportunities for the interns. Students who participate in the program will be awarded a certificate of completion to add value to their experience and help build their resumes.
