About Experience Institute:
You're in college. You want to gain experience outside of the classroom. You're thinking about an internship or study abroad, but you need something different. You learn by doing and want to make something meaningful, meet brilliant people, and gain timeless skills.
The program (www.LeapSummer.com) includes curriculum and learning hard and soft skills, getting an internship at an incredible company, coaching and support and a capstone project. We have locations all around the world!
Requirements/Necessary Skills for Recruitment:
At the end of the summer, you’ll present your experience and learnings to family, friends, and individuals from your community. EXPO is one-part TEDx talk and one-part thesis presentation wrapped up in one big, fun night.
We’ve partnered with the American Council of Education to offer college credit (up to 12 credits!). At the end of the summer, if you successfully complete all aspects of the program, you can request a transcript of your course completion from A.C.E. You’ll need to check with your School’s Admissions Counselor to confirm they will accept a transcript.
The dreamers, thinkers and doers - people who see problems as opportunities and find new lessons around each corner.
Internship Description of Duties:
In June, you'll meet your classmates in Chicago for a rigorous two-week Meetup. Together, with a group of instructors who've worked alongside Stanford, Kellogg, and an array of companies, we will focus on curriculum around five core competencies.
Upon your acceptance into Leap Summer, Sage Corps will match you with pre-vetted high growth startups in select global cities. You will work full-time with a team based on your skill set and the startup’s needs. You may focus your work on verticals such as: Marketing, Sales/Business Development, or Product Development.
Outside of your apprenticeship, you'll be immersed in the host city's entrepreneurial and business ecosystem. Sage Corps will help you attend networking events and round table discussions at venture capital funds, startup incubators and larger companies. All participants will have access to the Sage and Experience Institute Network–thought leaders and innovators who act as supporters throughout your summer.
