The White HouseWashington, D.C. – So, what’s a typical day like for a White House Intern

It’s a question I’m often asked, and the honest answer is that there’s no such thing. The mission of the White House Internship Program is to make the “People’s House” accessible to future leaders from around the nation, and to cultivate and prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership opportunities. To this end, the programs and opportunities of the Internship Program make for days filled with unique learning experiences, thought-provoking conversation, and unforgettable events.

LEAP Teaches Youth how to fish instead of handing out fish sandwiches

 

LEAP OrganizationClarksville, TN – According to a Chinese Proverb if you give a man a fish then you only feed him for a day. However if you teach a man to fish then you are able to feed him for a lifetime. This is the approach that LEAP takes with both its adult and juvenile clients.

“We are here to give members of our community a hand up, not a hand out” commented Leo Millan, owner of Millan Enterprises and Strategic Planner of the L.E.A.P. ORG. Board of Directors.
