Ladders for Leaders

Ladders for Leaders offers high school and college students the opportunity to participate in paid professional summer internships.

April 7, 2020 – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the health and safety of all New Yorkers, the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development has made the difficult decision to not operate Ladders for Leaders this summer. We look forward to your application when the program resumes, and will keep you posted with updates when they are available to us.

 

Commonpoint Queens is home to a number of youth workforce programs, including the nationally recognized program Ladders for Leaders. Ladders for Leaders offers high school and college students the opportunity to participate in paid professional summer internships with leading corporations, non-profit organizations and government agencies in New York City.
