  • Develop a professional network
  • Gain hands-on experience to expand your resume
  • Develop and refine skills

  • Experience how academic work and practical application work together
  • Explore career choices within your major field of study
  • Get a head start on the competition
  • Have the flexibility to work from home
  • Earn a competitive wage

Our Spring 2022 intern, Brooksie Lawson, has this to say about her experience: 

“I would encourage anyone considering interning with Golden LEAF to take that step and apply! I’ve gained several new skills in my time as an intern so far, and I’ve been able to play to my strengths while also being pushed out of my comfort zone in some areas. It will be a great experience for anyone!”
