The Leadership Center Internship Opportunities

With the variety of services and programs, The Leadership Center offers, we are able to offer a number of unique internships for students who are in college or have just graduated high school.

The areas that we offer internships in are:

  • Education: Over the years, we have developed a number of educational offerings under our Disciplines 4 Leadership Communities Programs. They vary from 2-day leadership conferences to day-camps, week long camps to partnership camps with the Edgerton Explorit Center and everything in between. We are currently offering two types of opportunities under our D4LC Programs:

This is a great experience to understand how a business functions, how to navigate client needs, and how to operate a multifaceted non-profit business. For more information, click here.
