Imagine yourself witnessing a bullying scene.
“Your hair is too long,” students say to a young Sikh girl, taunting her. “It’s gross!” You are outraged. You know this is wrong, and you know you have to do something about it.
“Stop!” you say. “This girl has long, beautiful hair because she is Sikh, a religion grounded in equality.”
Does that remind you of yourself? Is that the type of person you aspire to be? If so, the Junior Sikh Coalition
(JSC) is looking for you.
JSC, a youth leadership development program, is seeking new youth to join – youth who are committed to creating real change and have a passion for fighting injustice.
We are looking for dedicated young people to join our community of youth leaders who are interested in social justice and organizing, and really want to make a contribution to their communities. We are looking to grow our family of Sikh brothers and sisters who empower each other and their communities.
If you have that passion and commitment, we will help you acquire critical leadership skills and mentor you in putting them to use.
Interested? Send in your application by midnight May 31, 2016.
You must be a sophomore, junior or senior in high school, or a freshman or sophomore in college to be eligible to apply.
We look forward to hearing from you and learning what YOU want to do for your communities!
If you have any questions, you may contact me at email@example.com or 212-655-3095 ext. 88.
Want to know more? Reach out to any JSC member, send a message on their Facebook page or email JSC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
