The New Jersey Leadership Program
The New Jersey Leadership Program’s fellowship program offers South Asian youth the ability to engage in and learn about local government through a summer internship with their local Mayoral Office, District State Legislator or the Governor’s Office. This internship is supplemented by a weekly speaker series, networking events, field trips and career mentoring workshops. Additionally, fellows are expected to complete a civic engagement project by the end of their fellowship that strives to make a positive social impact in their community. The fellowship program is open to high school and college students.
