Leadership Rhode Island meets specific office needs by engaging student interns for staff and committee support as well as project work. The internship program is designed to be a mutually beneficial experience for the intern as well as the organization.

Although monetary compensation is not guaranteed, we are dedicated to helping interns enhance their skills, particularly in areas that interest them. For a successful internship, we will serve as references or provide a letter of recommendation. Alternatively, the internship may be used to fulfill community service requirements. If interested, please email us at office@leadershipri.org or call 401.273.1574.
