Intern with LEAP
LEAP’s internship program is designed to give post-secondary students and recent graduates meaningful, project-based experience in the field of economic development.
Each LEAP department will have the opportunity to hire one unpaid intern per academic semester: fall (September-December), spring/winter (January-May) and summer (June-August).
While each department should identify one or more projects or initiatives with suitable work for an intern, projects will ultimately be decided between the department and the intern to ensure mutual benefit.
In addition to project work, interns will complete bi-weekly check ins with LEAP’s director of operations, complete monthly blog posts on LEAP’s website and be invited to attend LEAP staff and board meetings.
Following successful completion of a LEAP internship, interns will present their project work and/or research findings to LEAP staff.
