Trinity Western University

Laurentian Leadership Centre


The Laurentian Leadership Centre is a live-in, extension program in an historic mansion in the heart of Ottawa, the nation’s capital. The program includes a half-time internship and three courses. It is geared towards third and fourth year students, or recent graduates, who are looking for experiential learning. No other program in Canada offers the same access to elite Ottawa internships in politics and NGOs. The LLC Director works with each student to develop a customized placement relevant to his or her academic or career interests.

Past students have interned with Members of Parliament; Senators; Cabinet Minister’s Offices; international NGOs like the Red Cross or World Vision; the War Museum; or an NGO like the Centre for Public Dialogue or the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.
