Community Foundation of Lorain County

Winner of NOCHE’s 2014 Coolest Internship Award

The Leadership Lorain County Internship Program this year has paired fifteen college students with local non profits around the county. The program focuses on exposing these students to how non profits operate, offers networking opportunities, team building, leadership development, and work experience. During the 10 week program they will visit different resources in the community such as Big Frog, YMCA, ShurTech, Common Ground, the Lorain Palace Theater, FAVA, and others gaining knowledge and exposure to all that Lorain County has to offer. The internship program helps prepare our future community leaders.
