Community Leadership Program is a 12-week, experiential program for LGBTQQIA+ youth and allies, ages 18-24, designed to deepen participants’ understanding of social issues impacting their communities, while supporting them in developing a culminating group project that addresses a specific community need. 

Throughout this 12-week program, you will:

  • Develop your leadership skills by conceiving, planning, and implementing a group project that will positively impact our community!
  • Gain workforce experience by supporting LYRIC staff in areas such as problem-solving, outreach, program support, research, and resource development.
  • Have the option to attend office hours and receive one-on-one support in identifying your professional/personal goals and taking steps to meet them. This can mean anything from working on a resume, writing a cover letter, applying for jobs, completing mock interviews, or anything you want to work on!
  • Gain access to LYRIC’s one-on-one youth advocacy services that can help connect you with other resources in the community and services to help you succeed!

If you have additional questions or want to learn more about the program, don’t hesitate to reach out to Nikia (they/them) for more information.
