The Internship Initiative for Leadership
Each initiative is tailor-made to fit the requirements and objectives of the sponsoring organizations. In this
sense, the Advanced Leadership Foundation develops specific programs aimed at developing different areas such as sustainable development, government accountability, economic growth, etc. Moreover, the initiative may also cover general and broad spectrums, thus granting the possibility of a wide-ranging experience.
Starting in the fall semester of 2015, a group of top recent graduates, will be placed at the leading companies and institutions in the United States. The Advanced Leadership Foundation will individually select the internship placements for each participant, to enhance their knowledge in the specific area in which they are majoring.
Internships take place from Monday to Thursday. Fridays are reserved for training seminars and leadership
workshops which are the ideal complement for this international experience. The seminars and workshops are delivered by professors from some of the best universities in the US such as Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, American University, Harvard University, etc.
The Advanced Leadership Foundation takes care of the accommodation of our young professionals in a
residence where they will be placed with other international participants. Furthermore, our Foundation takes care of all participant visa requirements to work in the United States.
This professional and academic experience will allow participants to be part and learn from the most
competitive and advanced economy in the world. The “Leadership Initiative” is designed so that, once they are back in their home countries, participants may implement all the knowledge acquired during the internship to benefit the their society in general.
