Leading in Service

The Bonner Leaders are students dedicated to improving lives in the community. They respond to the economic, social, and cultural challenges affecting the quality of life in the city of Houston.  The Bonners are top academic performers who learn by engaging in the community.  Through their project-based service, Bonners learn critical skills, including leadership, teamwork, project planning, and time management.

University of Houston Bonner Leaders Year in Review '19-'20

Hardwork pays off, Congratulations to all the graduating 2020 Bonner Leaders. We look forward to hearing about all the great things you do in your community!


The mission of the Bonner Leaders Progam at the University of Houston is to create high-quality educational experiences for students, while simultaneously working to build a better Houston community.  We do this by focusing on the factors that perpetuate the cycle of poverty: food insecurity, educational achievement, and community health and nutritionWe believe that working with and through partners not only contributes to the community, but also enriches and enhances the student learning experience.
