Bringing the internship to you.

The Leadership Initiatives Virtual Youth Development Programs bring the collaborative spirit and engaging hands-on experience to the safety of a virtual platform. With a 5:1 student to staff ratio and small class sizes, students interact directly and frequently with expert guest speakers and their staff mentor, both in lecture and virtual breakout rooms.

Leadership Initiatives believes that building a relationship with interns is a critical component to ignite a student's love of learning and set them on a path for success during college and in their career. Students will know that a real, caring person is working with them to complete their internship, and this support and personal guidance can be the difference between success and failure for some students.

Join us this summer to transform lives around the world, all from the safety and comfort of a virtual environment.
