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.

Program tuition covers the cost of room and board, ground transportation during the program, a 5:1 student to faculty and staff ratio, all curriculum, and materials.

Education assistance covered by tuition includes one-on-one college admissions counseling sessions, lecture fees, mentor sessions with experts, workshops, and all academic benefits, including SAT/ACT training through TestRocker and college essay editing.

Scholarships, payment plans, and fundraising assistance are available.

Fundraising Assistance

Leadership Initiatives is dedicated to providing opportunities for everyone who shows drive, determination, and grit towards their future goals. We have created a fundraising department to help students participate in one of our summer internships.

If you choose the fundraising option, you will meet one-on-one with a fundraising coach who will assist in creating a comprehensive fundraising campaign.

Fundraising also allows participants to go on an 18-month payment plan with a deposit. Designed for students in financial need this fundraising option allows students to hold several fundraisers to pay for their tuition.
