Summer Leadership Program 2018 for young Canadians

Application Deadline: January 15, 2018

The Summer Leadership Program (SLP) is a four month unique internship opportunity developed to invest in the future success of young people from across the country.

The program gives young people an opportunity to contribute to Prime Minister Trudeau’s team while gaining vital job experience serving in the offices of Members of Parliament, Ministers’ Offices, The Prime Minister’s Office and the Liberal Research Bureau. SLP Participants working with Members of Parliament may have the ability to split their internship by serving two months in Ottawa and two months in the Constituency Office.

The SLP 2018 internship has been designed to develop learning objectives that are structured into the experience and guided by supervising political staff. The aim of the program is to balance the participants learning experience with the goals and responsibilities they are assigned in their respective office. Although each office will have a slightly different job description, we’re committed to providing participants with a meaningful learning experience where they will be able to learn, grow, and connect alongside other emerging young leaders who are passionate about our government’s agenda.

Program Dates : April 30, 2018 – August 24, 2018
Internship opportunities will be primarily based in Ottawa. Certain internship opportunities will be split by serving two months in Ottawa and two months in the Constituency Office of a Member of Parliament.
