Internship Development Program

GLI has launched Finding You in Lou, a professional and leadership development program geared to current Juniors and Seniors in college who are enrolled in an internship. Our goal is to provide you with information on and access to community leaders and stakeholders, so you can see what your post-collegiate career holds for you in Louisville.

This four-week cohort-based program has four main pillars:

1. Leadership Development: Receive training to become the leaders of tomorrow and make a positive impact on our community.

2. Professional Development: Experience intentional opportunities for professional development.

3. Networking: Connect with other interns, successful young professionals in the region, GLI staff, and City Champ brand ambassadors to expand your professional networks.

4. City Showcase: Learn what it is like to live, work, and play in Greater Louisville post-graduation. Learn how to impact change in the region while having fun.

How It Works

Weekly programming will be provided over the course of four weeks. Each week, community partners will present a leadership or professional development opportunity. Later that week, we have an open social/networking opportunity where you can meet other interns, community partners, business leaders, City Champs and others to help you get connected in Louisville.
