Partnership with Leadership Triangle:
Securing an internship can provide invaluable experience and professional contacts to college students hoping to enter the workforce. Unfortunately, while these internships may offer great practical experience, many companies do not invest in the holistic leadership development of their interns. Interns miss the opportunity for 1:1 career coaching and developing skills such as conflict resolution, engaging difficult conversations, and authentic networking.
This is why Leadership Triangle is partnering with Capitol Broadcasting Company (CBC) to provide free leadership development and career coaching support alongside a paid internship experience. All students who successfully complete their internships will be admitted into the lifelong Goodmon Fellowship.
Interns will be paid $6400 over the course of a 400 hour Fall internship ($16/hr), running from August 7-December 16. Additionally, each intern will receive $160 as a transportation stipend. Leadership Triangle will administer all payments.
As a part of the total 400 hour commitment, each intern will engage with LT for 40 hours of leadership development and career support, including 1:1 career and leadership coaching.
Interns will begin and end their internship within a cohort of 9 other students, to promote networking across local HBCUs. There will be an initial intern's retreat as well as a closing ceremony and celebration.
The application deadline is July 8th. Interns will be notified of an application decision during the week of July 18th.
If selected, interns will be expected to join the cohort for an initial leadership retreat held from Sun., August 7th – Mon., Aug 8th in Rocky Mount, NC. Leadership Triangle has arranged lodging for interns and staff. Meals will be provided. Interns will be expected to arrange their own transportation and arrive no later than 2pm on August 7th. If transportation is an issue, please contact us at Lana@leadershiptriangle.com.
The internship will end with a celebratory capstone event on December 16, 2022 at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
