Pilot program nurtures leadership for Episcopal Young Adults

May 23, 2011

Young adults have an opportunity to participate in an innovative pilot program, the Episcopal Leadership Institute for Young Adults, which centers on leadership and advocacy training.

Presented by the Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Leadership Institute for Young Adults is designed for those 18-30 year olds who wish to develop their skills and knowledge while conversing with Episcopal leaders and connecting with existing networks and structures of the church.

Applications are now being accepted for the next session, an Eco-Justice Immersion Experience, to be held August 27-September 1 in Seattle, WA. This session will focus on the themes of sustainable economy, climate justice, and eco-theology. The six-day program includes discussion sessions with national and regional leaders from both the faith and non-profit worlds, hiking, and working on advocacy techniques for eco-justice.

The August program is limited to 20. Applications are due June 15. For details and registration:
