NAA Seeks Applicants From Emerging Leaders of Color

The National Afterschool Association (NAA) is seeking applicants for their Professional Learning Community for Emerging Leaders of Color.  The program seeks to foster a network of equity-driven leaders of color, support them in deepening their equity analysis and leadership skills to be agents of change in the afterschool field and help them create a roadmap that advances their careers in the afterschool field.

Between March 2020 and July 2020, participants of this program will meet six times, (4 virtual sessions, 2 in-person sessions). Through interactive, engaging and thoughtfully facilitated sessions that will foster community and elicit dialogue and self-reflection, participants will:

  • Network and build community with other leaders of color across the country;
  • Explore how power, privilege and oppression impact leaders of color as they navigate systems and in their efforts to best serve young people;
  • Engage in personal reflection and examine the intersection between their personal development and their leadership practices; and
  • Deepen their equity analysis and gain strategies to influence and inform policy and practices within their organizations.

Interested leaders from Kentucky may access the applications and more information here.  Applications are due by 5:00 pm PST Monday, February 10, 2020.
