If you are a Sikh high school or college student in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut and are interested in working to help your community, the Junior Sikh Coalition leadership program might be for you:
Junior Sikh Coalition members gain valuable skills and training in youth leadership and will have multiple opportunities to utilize these skills within their communities and the Sikh Coalition network. In the past, youth members have led community organizing campaigns, organized anti-bullying conferences, participated in press conferences, attended conferences by the White House, and have played a vital role in creating impactful change in their local communities.
Junior Sikh Coalition members care about issues and problems in the Sikh community and are dedicated to enabling Sikh youth.
This is a great opportunity for Sikh youth who have an interest in social justice. The application deadline is July 25, 2012. See the Junior Sikh Coalition website for more information and to apply.
