Skills you might obtain in the LER program include nonprofit management, networking, WordPress, marketing, social media, research, education and outreach, event planning and management, content development, and visual design.

Beginning in Spring 2021, the program pay structure is as follows:

  • The 110-140 hour internship track of the LER program MUST be for college credit.
  • The renewable 12-week program provides a $530 stipend over the 12-week period, averaging 4 hours of work per week.

All stipends are disbursed at the end of each month of work, based on the portion of the program completed that month.
