Investing in Future Leaders

The Junior Sikh Coalition is a robust year-long program that trains Sikh youth with leadership skills that are transferable to their community work, academics, and careers. Members meet weekly to receive social justice training and lead projects that incorporate values of equality, justice, and sarbat da bhalla to create social change in their communities.

In 2013, through support from sangat members like you, the inaugural group closed out its first year and then expanded to welcome 15 new members for year two. In just 16 months the Junior Sikh Coalition has already worked towards some incredible achievements:

  • Published in the Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News and have appeared on ABC News
  • Attended a White House briefing on Sikh issues in Washington DC to advocate for anti-bullying reforms
  • Presented anti-bullying workshops and provided resources to over 1,000 youth
  • Participated in a “Train the Trainers” poetry and performance workshop
  • Launched the Nirbhau Nirvair campaign by conducting Nirbhau Nirvair Art Workshops
  • Launched the submission process for a coffee table art book featuring poetry and art from Sikh youth across the country
  • Attended the City Hall Hearing on School Safety and Climate in support of the Dignity in Schools Campaign
  • Participated in the NYC Surat Fauj 5K for Charity and volunteered for the NYC Marathon
  • Received advocacy training to gain in-depth understanding of advocacy tools such as government engagement, alliance building and media engagement
  • Attended and led workshops at Camp Chardi Kala in the summers of 2012 & 2013

We continue to turn to these impressive emerging leaders for inspiration and action. We know this is just the beginning of the impact they will have on the lives of all Americans.

  • "By being involved in the Junior Sikh Coalition, I will promote a community grounded on equality, acceptance, and love and act in solidarity with my team to fight for social justice, all the while serving as an inspiration for others to do the same. In the process, I hope to gain a better sense of my identity as a Sikh.”
