“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” John Maxwell
The Emerging Leaders Program builds a pipeline of ethical, well informed, diverse, and prepared individuals, ready to serve as civic leaders in their communities and across the state and country. At the end of this six-month program, participants are connected with internship opportunities within government and civics in order to utilize the skills they learned throughout their time in Emerging Leaders.
College students often are often pressured to focus solely on textbook and lecture-led education; during the Emerging Leaders: Leadership Program retreat participants practice team-building skills in realistic, hands-on scenarios, as well as fostering lifelong relationships with like-minded colleagues and dedicated mentors.
All Emerging Leaders graduates are assisted individually to secure an internship in their field of interest once the program is completed.
Who Should Apply?
The Emerging Leaders program is looking for dedicated and motivated college age and graduate students from Florida, Texas and Virginia to participate in the 2015-2016 class of Emerging Leaders. Emerge USA is an organization that is dedicated to ensuring our country’s minority communities have the same constitutional rights, social privileges, and political opportunities afforded to all Americans.
