    About the internship:

    The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) is looking for the best and brightest student leaders for a paid two-semester internship with a summer/fall start. This role is remote until it is safe to return to campus.

    As an NSLS Student President, you’ll lead the charge on starting a new NSLS chapter on your college campus. You’ll be responsible for helping members and fellow students who are training to become stronger leaders by hosting events, managing the day-to-day chapter operations, and providing an excellent member experience.

    The roots you plant during your internship will live on long after you graduate. Not only will you change the lives of other students, but you’ll transform yourself by developing your own leadership skills, conquering new challenges, and getting hands-on experience in management, communication, budgeting, public speaking, marketing, and event planning. No matter who you want to become after graduation, you’ll gain the skills you’ll need to thrive in your life and career.
