LEE Program

Calling All High School Seniors & College Undergrads!

The 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.

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.

2021 Applications have been closed. Make sure to check back in January 2022 for next year’s Lee Program opportunities.

Only one person per family will be placed per program year.
