National Student Leadership Forum
The National Student Leadership Forum is a three-day annual event held in the fall that brings together a diverse group of university leaders from across the country. The program for the Forum is intentionally relational. Students will interact with fellow students, recent college graduates, young professionals and established adults from the political, business and social service sectors of society.
National Prayer Breakfast
The National Prayer Breakfast is an annual gathering in Washington, D.C., which draws 3,500 people from all over the world. During this event, the President of the United States, representatives from more than 120 nations, leaders from all areas of the U.S. government, and individuals from various walks of life come together. In early February, some students who attended the NSL Forum are asked to attend the National Prayer Breakfast as part of the student contingent for this event.
Congressional Fellows Program
The Congressional Fellows Program is a two-month summer opportunity for current undergraduate students (aged 18-26). A small group of 15-20 students are selected each year to live, work and learn together in Washington, D.C. Fellows live in the Cornerstone Intern House with other students working in D.C. and intern in Congressional offices or with other organizations in the D.C. area.
Cornerstone Intern House
The Cornerstone Intern House in College Park, Maryland, is a housing option for Washington, D.C. summer interns. Cornerstone has provided a unique family-oriented atmosphere for nearly 20 years. The hope is that Cornerstone would provide a fun atmosphere for summer interns who are seeking to learn and grow not only in their career objectives, but also in their relationships.
Since 2000, the National Student Leadership post-graduate internship has provided an opportunity for college graduates to translate key principles of Jesus into their daily lives. The principles emphasized include living in community, stewardship of finances, servant leadership, and reconciled living. Interns help plan National Student Leadership events throughout the year, travel domestically to various events/campuses, and experience diverse cultural settings abroad.
