Overview of student board program
Members of the St. Louis Fed's student board of directors program come from diverse backgrounds and serve as liaisons between St. Louis area high schools and the Federal Reserve. During their year on the board, members of the student board meet every month September through May at the St. Louis Fed, Broadway and Locust Street.
At these monthly meetings, students discuss issues related to economics and personal finance; participate in discussions with Bank leaders on topics ranging from professional development to career planning and progression; and, prepare a presentation about the Federal Reserve to be delivered to peers at their respective high school. After successful completion of the year long program, students can apply for summer internships.
