LEAD Professional Tracks
When you apply to The Washington Center, you select a professional track.* The track you select will be led by one of our LEAD Instructors who serve as facilitator and mentor.
*Please note that the professional track area you select does not depend on the internship you choose. You'll work with someone in the Office of Internship Site Relations, on an individual basis, to find an internship related to your unique interests. Likewise, the internship and professional track you select do not limit the courses from which you can choose.
We offer the following professional tracks:
- Advocacy, Service & Arts
