New New York Leaders (internship and fellowship)
The New NY Leaders Initiative is designed to renew the connection between young people and the state and ensure that state government is diverse, talented, and prepared to lead for decades to come.
One component of the initiative, the Empire State Fellows Program, is a full-time leadership training program that prepares the next generation of talented professionals for careers as New York State policy-makers. The second component is the first ever coordinated, statewide Student Intern Program, which will assign students to a particular branch of government to gain hands-on experience serving the people, and provide interns opportunities to interact with government leaders and policy makers.
For more information on both the fellowship (for those with a degree) and the internship (for current students), please see http://www.dos.ny.gov/newnyleaders/
