The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), in partnership with Equality NC and the Time Out Youth Center, is accepting applications for the 2015 Emerging Leaders program. The redesigned year-long program is focused on training lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) young adult leaders in the Carolinas.
Young adults ages 18 to 25 from North Carolina and South Carolina are encouraged to apply.
The program will commence on Friday, February 20, 2015 in conjunction with the 2015 HRC North Carolina Gala.
Participants will take part in an initial two day seminar focused on identifying key competencies of leadership, and will meet local, state and national LGBTQ leaders, volunteer with gala preparations and receive a complimentary ticket to the 2015 HRC North Carolina Gala. The seminar will be held at the Time Out Youth Center, 2320 North Davidson Street, Charlotte, NC 28205.
Twenty leaders will be selected to participant in the 2015 class. Curriculum and supervision of the project will be shared by HRC, Equality NC and the Time Out Youth Center. This 12-month program will provide ongoing leadership opportunities and training throughout the year.
