The intern experience begins in early September when they are recommended to the program by the previous C-Legs graduate, or one of the sponsoring high schools, or they learn of it from friends and family or the web.
Once to indicate their desire to join the program, the first step is to complete a seven page application for a position in the program. This application covers a wide variety of areas in their life so far. Each intern needs to describe in detail the breadth of their intellectual pursuits, spiritual formation, apostolic and volunteer work, athletic endeavors, and human development. Each application is reviewed and compared to the our Idea Intern Profile.
If the application meets with approval, the Internet is invited to join the program and begin the journey.
