Emerging Leaders is a rigorous, eight week leadership training program for individuals who have experienced homelessness and are ready to take their advocacy to the next level.
Lived experience of homelessness includes: living in a vehicle or encampment, couch surfing, staying in shelters, and many other crisis situations directly related to housing stability. Applicants do not need any other type of experience to be a competitive applicant in the Emerging Leaders Program! We welcome both experienced advocates wanting to build on their knowledge of the system and those who are just starting starting out.
Interested applicants can apply online by visiting everyonehome.org/leaders!
Due to very limited space, not all who apply are able to participate in the program. We prioritize applications that are complete, and provide at least a few thoughtful sentences to each short answer prompt.
Multiple cohorts are convened throughout the year, and admissions are held on a rolling basis. Once capacity for the upcoming cohort is reached, other applications will be kept on file for future rounds of the program.
Support and Accessibility: Participants are compensated $25 an hour. Additional support is available to cover costs associated with technology, child care, transportation, and other potential barriers.
Questions about the Emerging Leaders Program can be sent to email@example.com, and a staff member will be in touch. Thank you for your interest!
