About the internship:
The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) is looking for the best and brightest student leaders for a paid remote internship with a summer/fall start.
As an NSLS Intern, you’ll lead the charge of starting a new NSLS chapter as the Student President at your college or university. You’ll be responsible for establishing the chapter to then facilitate a leadership development program for your fellow student members. You’ll contribute to their growth as leaders by hosting events, managing the day-to-day chapter operations, and providing an excellent member experience.
The roots you plant during your internship will live on long after you graduate. Not only will you change the lives of other students, but you’ll elevate yourself by developing your own leadership skills, conquering new challenges, and getting hands-on experience in management, communication, budgeting, public speaking, marketing, and event planning. No matter what your goals are after graduation, you’ll gain the skills you’ll need to thrive in your life and career.
