The Leadership Experience & Employment Program, founded by the late Harris County Commissioner El Franco Lee, places Houston area high school graduates and college students in internship positions in county departments and private firms. Founded in 1985, the Leadership Experience & Employment Program promotes personal growth, academic excellence and professional work experience in fields such as engineering, science and technology, health care, accounting, and construction to name a few.
The program is designed to promote personal growth and knowledge in the working arena, encourage academic excellence, and promote financial rewards for satisfactory completion of work production. It has been our goal to place students in positions within those departments/divisions relating to their major course of college studies, when possible.
Age limitations are 17-23 years of age. Community service during the program may be required. Maximum of one person per family can be placed per program year.
