That’s why we’re inviting promising young men to apply for the Shelton Leadership Challenge—an intense and selective six-day residential summer camp. I’m asking you today to help us identify a few outstanding young men for our upcoming session.During the SLC, we guarantee that participants will be challenged—physically, mentally, and psychologically. Attendees will take onleadership positions and participate in team-building activities (like ropes courses and focused discussions). They will tackle a service project with other campers and further develop their leadership potential.The SLC is a selective program for students who have a 3.0 or higher G.P.A. (un-weighted). The program will take place from June 26 through July 1, 2016, on the Hampden-Sydney College campus. Cost to attend the program is $600 for the week; this cost covers room, board and all activities.

Flippy (flippy.com) is a super fast growing new app that lets you become the star of famous clips 🙂 We are running an 8-week marketing internship (Jun 13 – Aug 5) that students can participate in remotely, with live video chat lessons and checkins.
You would get real world marketing experience and learn things like Viral strategy, Influencer programs, Content marketing, Network retargeting, etc. We would get help growing our brand, and learn from your product feedback. Should take only a few hours/week. Seems like a win-win!
