Finding You in Lou: Intern Leadership & Professional Development

Finding You in Lou is a free professional and leadership development program geared to current juniors and seniors in college who are enrolled in an internship. Our goal is to provide interns with information on and access to community leaders and stakeholders. In addition to leadership and professional development, we also want to help get interns connected to the community. Join GLI staff, Live in Lou City Champs, community members, and fellow interns for a weekly social hour where they can meet the people who will help them get and stay connected in Louisville.
