Cultivate skills. Connect with community. Create change.

Applications are now open for the 2015–2016 Young Leaders Institute!

SAALT’s Young Leaders Institute (YLI) is an opportunity for undergraduate students and other young adults to build leadership skills, connect with activists and mentors, and explore social change strategies around issues that affect South Asian and immigrant communities in the US. The Institute is designed to cultivate skills to deepen knowledge and awareness; strengthen and nurture relationships with diverse communities; and empower young leaders to be agents of change.

The 2015–2016 Young Leaders Institute will focus on addressing and confronting anti-Black racism. Students will develop projects to address and confront anti-Black racism among South Asian Americans on their campuses and in their communities.
