Community Internship Program - LEAP

Get Talented, Job-Ready Interns!


LEAP (Learn as you Earn Advancement Program) is a NYCEDC funded program through the “LINK” Initiative (Leveraging Innovations and our Neighborhoods in the Knowledge community).  The LEAP Program connects Associate and Certificate candidates to jobs in growing, in-demand occupations. The program seeks to address issues affecting student graduation rates including limited work place skills, financial burden and limited post-graduation placement opportunities.

The LEAP Program is a great opportunity for employers to select ambitious, skilled, goal oriented interns to work at their organizations at a cost effective rate. Participating employers also have the option of hiring students they have trained as full time employees upon completion of their degree program. Students receive soft-skills training in the classroom and career counseling support during, and post-internship, resulting in program completion and full-time job placement. Students are selected from local community colleges and certificate programs in the specific sectors they are studying and are only accepted into the program if they meet the program prerequisites.

Our ambitious, skilled and goal-oriented students are ready to be placed in the following sectors:

  • Administrative
  • Accounting/Bookkeeping
  • Information Technology/Web Development

Employer Participation:

Internships in any of the following sectors: Administrative/Assistant, Accounting/Bookkeeping, IT/Web Development
Commitment for open feedback on the internships (helps with improving program/student training/preparation
Paid Internship offering minimum of $8.00 -$15.00 per hour (employers discretion)
