Applications are now being accepted for Next Up: A Leadership Program for Young People Committed to Social and Environmental Justice
The application process is now underway for all four Next Up programs. This is an amazing, intensive and transformative program for young social change activists between the ages of 18 and 32. The program is offered in four cities across three provinces: Next Up BC in Vancouver, Next Up Edmonton, Next Up Calgary, and Next Up Saskatchewan in Saskatoon – so please forward this call to your friends and colleagues in those regions.
In each province, an impressive group of young people will be selected for an intense seven-month program. Participants will develop life-long relationships, explore different leadership styles, meet some of the province’s leading change-makers, learn new leadership and organizing skills, and be exposed to current social justice issues and progressive governance.
The application deadline for Next Up BC is Friday, Sept 14, 2012 (deadlines vary for each province). The program runs between October 2012 and May 2013.
Please forward this call far and wide — to individuals, organizations, institutions and your progressive networks. Thank you in advance for helping us find the fabulous young leaders for Next Up 2012/13 — you’ll be thankful you did years from now!
