Youth ages 16-24 eligible for 12 week course

The Source LGBT+ Center, serving Tulare and Kings Counties, announces the second Youth Leadership Academy, to be held October 18, 2018 through March 19, 2019. Ten positions are available for the 12 week course. Participants will have already demonstrated leadership potential, and through the academy will develop skills in a series of training modules. Subjects covered include public speaking, presentations, financial literacy, advocacy, local government, and LGBT+ history. The capstone of the program is a trip to Sacramento to meet our assembly representatives and learn about state legislation. After the success of last year’s program, there was a demand from LGBT and allied youth for another class. A graduate of last year’s academy is currently serving as Student Senate President at College of the Sequoias.
Applications are due by September 14, 2018, and are available online at http://tinyurl.com/sourceleaders
