Purpose of the NLC Internship Program

For students, internships traditionally offer or assist in career development by providing real work experiences that presents students with opportunities to explore their interests and develop professional skills and competencies. Volunteerism is about serving in an area of need. Like internships, volunteering offers skill development, but on a much broader scope.

The internship experiences available during the National Leadership Conference will provide hands-on learning and mentorship, a behind-the-scenes experience of what is involved with key components of the conference, and a career exploration opportunity that few students have the ability to experience at an early stage of planning for their future.

Each NLC intern will be matched with a BPA Alumni for mentorship, on-site training and real-world learning experiences throughout the conference.

All BPA NLC Interns will be required to attend an informational webinar and an onsite Orientation Session to meet with the alumni mentors as well as understand their role at NLC. Dates and times to be announced.
Local Advisor approval/sign-off is required for all NLC Internships.

All applications will be reviewed and finalists will be selected after NLC registration and local advisor approval are confirmed. Student applicants not selected for an NLC Internship will be assigned to an NLC Volunteer opportunity at the conference.

NOTE: Students that apply for but are not selected to be a part of the NLC Internship program will be assigned to an NLC Volunteer program initiative.
