Lives Changes Across The Globe

The International Internship Program

For more than 15 years, Leadership Initiatives has operated on the same principle: you are never too young to change the world. Leadership Initiatives’ International Internship Program (IIP) is a two-year program that partners motivated high school students with community leaders from across the globe.

This partnership creates an opportunity for students to develop solutions for real-world problems facing communities in developing nations. IIP develops the leadership capacity of hundreds of high school students throughout the United States and the globe, creating a new generation of critical thinkers with a depth of experience in international development. Students create solutions to help address local development issues and in turn, solve real-world business, medical, and legal problems facing others.

Student-Lead Teams

Over the course of two years, students have an internship with a development partner from LI’s current area of focus: Northern Nigeria. Student teams work weekly to address issues that their partner faces in their everyday practices, benefiting not only the development partner, but also the entire community. Students complete practical research for each solution and help their partner implement the findings.

In the past, students have created a various number of solutions, ranging from new advertising plans and accounting systems to advocacy campaigns and in-depth health curriculum. The solutions that students in the International Internship Program create directly impact the growth of communities in Northern Nigeria and create a ripple effect of success in the broader community. Our students work every day to transform developing communities worldwide and hundreds of lives along the way.
