Pilot Program Fosters Leadership for Episcopal Young Adults

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 August 27-September 1 in Seattle, WA.


Presented by the Episcopal Church, the Leadership Institute 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 Eco-Justice Immersion Experience to be held in Seattle. 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.


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