Hey students! This one's for you. Some great opportunities from Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics (LEAP)... If you'd like to get involved and step up as a leader on your campus and community, and looking to develop new skills and gain more experience, you might want to check out STEP UP!, the 2nd annual Nissan Student Leadership Summit, and Leadership in Action, an eight-week summer internship. Here are some details:
Nissan Student Leadership Summit

Join us for the 2nd Annual Nissan Student Leadership Summit on Saturday, March 7th! Featuring seven personal and organizational development workshops designed and facilitated by community leaders, this one-day conference will empower students to STEP UP! as leaders on campus, strengthen their organizations, and develop strong visions for the future. Come meet fellow student leaders from across California, learn new skills together, and organize for the years ahead!

Leadership in Action (LIA)
Interested in organizing for the community?

Curious how life is like at a nonprofit job?

Want to find all these things out while also developing your leadership skills and getting paid?

LIA is a paid eight-week summer internship places interns at local, Asian and Pacific Islander (API), community-based organizations. Four days of the week, interns are placed in a range of API community-based organizations in order to gain real-life experience working at nonprofits. On the fifth day, interns come back to LEAP for leadership development workshops, panels, and dialogues with community leaders.

Program Date: June 22, 2009 – August 14, 2009
I know a lot of intelligent, motivated students out there who would benefit from these programs. I'm told by the organizers that my posting about the internship last year helped generate a lot of interest -- so don't let me down, my friends.
