Apply for This!: SAALT Rise Up! Young Leaders Institute

February 23, 2012

Here’s a note from SAALT:

Rise Up! is a great way to build your leadership skills, meet fellow students looking to positively impact their communities, and learn how to be an effective advocate and communicator on and off campus. There is no fee to participate and travel and lodging expenses are covered by SAALT!

Rise Up! is an opportunity for 15 South Asian American college students from around the country to come together for a four day convening in Washington, DC on May 5-8, 2012.

What can you expect? 

  • Learn how federal policy is made and how you can impact it
  • Explore important issues such as civil rights, immigration, and political participation
  • Develop skills around documentation of community stories and advocacy
  • Gain insight from experienced community-based leaders who will offer their advice and guidance
  • Go back to your campus with an action plan to document community narratives and create policy change
Application deadline is March 23rd. Email for more information.

I was so glad to see that the program is generously sponsored by Comcast and Southwest Airlines!
