Internship Description

After two decades of Raising and Supporting Young Global Leaders, our founder Jim Luce was appointed adjunct professor to The Caribbean Maritime University in Jamaica and charged with creating The Luce Leadership Center @ CMU to open in June 2019. The Intern will serve as Co-Director of the Luce Leadership Center @ CMU and will be based in Kingston, Jamaica. Duties would include, but are not limited to:

- Developing the online and physical components of the Centre, including academic curriculum for the Leadership certifications and degrees

- Managing the CMU Student Union and Port Royal Early Childhood projects

- Hosting our third annual Luce Leadership Experience that includes joint programs with the Kingston Lions Club and S.O.S. Children Village. The intern will receive full-scholarship (airfare, accommodations, meals, etc.) to participate in the two-week Leadership Experience.

- Attending regular meetings with our executive team in Kingston and New York. The intern would gain international work experience as well as invaluable exposure to program management, event planning, and higher education administration through this experience.

The intern will work with our global teams in both New York and Kingston, and will play a critical part in developing our very first Luce Leadership Centre. The intern will report directly to our Executive Director Chloe Hoang. Training by our President Jim Luce and Foundation’s Executive Staff will be provided to the intern throughout the placement. The other Co-Directors of the Centre, Robertto Bennet and Romain Wallace, will assist the intern in all workflow processes.

We are excited to bring on a talented, capable Princeton student onto our team and look forward to his/her contributions to the new Luce Leadership Center.
