Dear campus allies,
I would like to invite you to apply to SAALT’s annual leadership program, the Young Leaders Institute (YLI). YLI is an opportunity for 15-20 undergraduate university students to come together in Washington D.C. on July 18-20, 2014 to build leadership skills, connect with activists and mentors, and explore social change strategies around issues that affect South Asian and immigrant communities in the US. The deadline is extended to May 31, 2014!
The 2014 Young Leaders Institute will focus on LGBTQ justice and allyship. Students will develop projects to address LGBTQ issues and effective allyship on their campuses and in their communities. All students—LGBQ, transgender and gender non-conforming, and allies seeking to stand shoulder to shoulder with LGBT students against anti-LGBT language, bullying, and discrimination–are welcome to apply.
See below for more information and the application process. Feel free to share this with your student groups. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
