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 2020 cohort.
Through 3 weekend retreats, Emgage seeks to broaden the perspective and inspire attendees to meet the challenges of the future with confidence:
September 11th-13th in Houston
October 3rd-5th in Austin
December 2020 – International Trip (TBA)
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 with an international trip. This will be a unique opportunity to directly engage with the Muslim community in another country. Past international trips have takens students to Turkey, South Africa and Tanzania.
There is an application fee of $25. Food, lodging, and program costs are covered by Emgage for applicants who are accepted to the 2020 cohort (not including international trip). Application deadline is September 1, 2020.
