About the IPLD Program
The Industry Pipeline Leadership Development Program (IPLD) is a national professional leadership and personal enrichment experience that prepares individuals for technical, professional and personal success in prospective careers. This is a multi-year pipeline program that recruits, trains and prepares individuals for their steps toward career success from middle school through college.
How Does the Program Work?
When schools are closed, students participate in various industry field trips and mentoring experiences to help them decide on a career field. Throughout the year on a monthly basis on Saturdays, students receive the following to adequately prepare them for the workforce and their field of choice:
- Leadership, technical and professional development skills training (some certifications are applicable)
- Academic & scholarship preparation assistance
- Project-based learning opportunities with industry mentors
- Financial planning and training for parents
- Field trip opportunities to businesses and colleges
Each participant will later connect with employers in our network for internship, externship or job shadowing experiences at our annual career and professional development conference for opportunities around the country over the summer (or work to start a business as an entrepreneur).
To Apply: Students must complete the online application, provide a letter of recommendation from a teacher and an official school transcript of their previous school year. There is no GPA requirement to be accepted. However, students must provide proof of their efforts to achieve and/or maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher to maintain their acceptance in the leadership program.
