(formerly the Hispanic Interns in Community Service Program and the Hispanic Leaders Fellowship Institute).
An eight (8) week summer program geared toward leadership and professional development, the Governor’s Hispanic Fellows Program offers quality internship experiences for New Jersey’s Hispanic college students. Students work in a government, corporate or non-profit setting and participate in leadership training conducted by a team comprised of the Center’s staff; government officials; business professionals; current and/or former elected officials, who are experts in their respective fields.
The Leadership Seminar equips the interns participating in the Governor’s Hispanic Fellows Program with skills essential to executive leadership. Interns learn to assess their own leadership styles and communication skills. Interns are required to complete an individual course project throughout the 8 weeks.
