Are you a high school or college student looking to learn valuable leadership skills? Are you interested in making a difference in the Sikh community? If so, the Junior Sikh Coalition is looking for you.
After two successful years of its youth leadership program, the Sikh Coalition is recruiting youth members for a third year of the Junior Sikh Coalition.
The Junior Sikh Coalition is a robust year-long program that trains Sikh youth in leadership skills that are transferable to their community relationships, academic work, and careers. Workshops and exercises typically produce realistic situations to end discrimination, nurture skill sets necessary for leadership and management, and help exercise positive teamwork.
Participating in this program enables youth to gain valuable hands-on experience in leadership and advocacy, while creating noticeable change in their communities. Junior Sikh Coalition members acquire access to a rapidly growing youth leaders network and gain exposure to successful and empowering peers, both Sikh and non-Sikh.
Apply to the Junior Sikh Coalition now to become a recognized youth leader in your community.
