We Do More Than Simulations. We Transform Lives.
For more than 15 years, Leadership Initiatives has partnered with outstanding high school students to gain real-world experience, explore future careers, develop leadership skills and experience college life.
For-profit summer education programs showcase simulations as the key component of their educational experience. As a Non-Profit organization, we are proud to offer real experiences that impact the lives of students and the individuals they are partnered with.
Join us today and start an internship with a business in the developing world, work with a DC lawyer on an impending court case, or partner with a doctor to diagnose patients in sub-Saharan Africa.
