Emerging Leaders Application Now Open!

Emgage’s Texas Emerging Leaders program is designed to help unlock the potential of the next generation of American Muslim leaders. College students and young professionals who want to develop leadership skills while gaining knowledge about the political system, community building and civic education are encouraged to apply to be a part of the 2018 cohort.

Through 3 weekend retreats, Emgage seeks to broaden the perspective and inspire attendees to meet the challenges of the future with confidence:

  • January 20-21, 2018 in Houston
  • February 2018 in Austin
  • Summer 2018 in Washington D.C. (Hill Day)

In Houston and Austin, participants will gain skills through interactive leadership and advocacy workshops and presentations. Participants will further their understanding of local, state and federal political systems and this knowledge will benefit attendees of any discipline and background. The program will conclude in D.C. at Emgage’s National Hill Day with a unique opportunity to directly engage congressional offices to make legislative changes to address the issues that most concern American Muslims.

There is an application fee of $25. Food, lodging, and program costs are covered by Emgage for applicants who are accepted to the 2017/2018 cohort. Application deadline is January 15, 2018.
