We Do More Than Simulations.

For more than 15 years, Leadership Initiatives has partnered with outstanding high school students to gain real-world experience, explore future careers, and develop critical skills to create the next generation of leaders worldwide.

As a nonprofit organization, we are proud to offer real internships that impact the lives of students and the individuals they are partnered with.

Leadership Initiatives offers the leading experiential education programs for high school students with endorsements from the Microsoft Youthspark Program, the Starbucks Foundation, the International Youth Foundation, GlobalGiving, TestRocker, and the Future First Foundation.

While the current COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted most academic and extracurricular opportunities, Leadership Initiatives has expanded our decade of experience in education to our Summer Youth Development Programs to offer real-world internship experience in both a virtual environment and in-person at Georgetown University, providing participants with the confidence, knowledge, and practical skills to make their dreams a reality.

Join us today and start an internship with a business in the developing world, work with an attorney on an impending court case of national importance, develop anti-terrorism security strategies, or partner with a doctor to diagnose patients in sub-Saharan Africa.
