About the Internships
The Leonard M. Salle Memorial Internships were established in memory of Leonard Salle, one of the co-founders of the Commonweal Institute. Leonard was committed to educating younger generations about progressive values and the political process. He emphasized the importance of critical thinking skills as a foundation for democracy and good governance. The internships which bear his name are intended to provide young adults with an opportunity to build vital political, organizational, and communication skills; make new contacts in the progressive movement both locally and nationally; and help create the conditions for achieving lasting social change in this country.
