UU Youth and Young Adults of Color,                                                                           Multicultural Leadership School

Friday, July 27, 2012—Tuesday, July 31, 2012

The Multicultural Leadership School (MLS) is a training designed specifically for Unitarian Universalist (UU) Youth and Young Adults (age 15-30) of Color sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The goal of the training is to equip participants to be leaders in their UU congregation, district or continental committee. The three and a half day school will feature experienced facilitators who will be intentional in providing participants with experiences that will foster relationship building, leadership skills, racial/ethnic identity development, inter-cultural collaboration and deepening of faith identity. At the conclusion of the training, participants will have a new community of peers, stronger and more confident leadership abilities and a stable foundation for sustainable leadership in Unitarian Universalist congregations and other Unitarian Universalist communities and organizations.  Applications are available at http://www.uua.org/re/youth/identity-based/color/158493.shtml
