Leadership Experience & Employment Program founded by the late Harris
County Commissioner El Franco Lee and now sponsored by Commissioner Rodney
Ellis, 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.
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.
one person per family will be placed per program year.
