2017 Millennial Leaders Project Summer Conference
Call for Applications
Throughout the United States and around the world, there is a growing number of grassroots social movements working to address inequality and injustice in all it’s various forms. Many of these movements are being organized and led by millennial generation activists. What often goes unmentioned is the significance of spirituality to these movements and the young activists within them. For some, activism is an expression of their spirituality. For others, activism and social engagement is their spirituality. The MLP Summer Conference is a place where the intersections of spirituality, activism, leadership, and social justice is explored and actively cultivated.
Millennial generation activists, leaders and organizers (between the ages of 21-35) who have a demonstrated record of sustained social justice activism are invited to apply. Formal affiliation with a specific religious tradition or community is not required, and people with no formal religious affiliation are encouraged to apply. In addition to a proven track record of service, the only formal requirement for consideration is an interest in the intersections between spirituality and social justice.
The 2017 MLP Summer Conference will offer a structured time for reflection and discussion, community and network building, as well as collaborative learning with other Millennials from around the country, for the development of new tools and insights for social justice work. Participants will return to their work and homes with new networks and new ideas for addressing inequality in their respective communities.
Please note: Travel, shared room and board will be covered by the conference. Participation is limited to those currently living in the United States.
The application period begins on Monday, January 23rd, 2017. The final deadline for applications is Saturday, April 8th, 2017 (by 11:59 pm).
