In our diverse and interreligious culture, how do we have an impact on our communities, our families, and our work places?
Leaders need skills in order to create change and organize their communities. The Middle Project Leadership Lab provides experiential education on strategic ways to create a more just society. It grounds young leaders in spiritual practices that sustain the work of social justice and community building.
Young adults dream out loud of a better world, and the resources to make it happen. There is a deep yearning for connection, for spiritual practices, and for mentoring. This is a space for progressive people of faith to learn practical tools for the transformation they seek in communities and in their work places. In this season, young adults will learn the specifics of community organizing, the power of one-to-one conversations, and tools to engage the politics of faith, with a particular emphasis on voting as a human right.
We will focus on the following core learning:
Leadership Styles and Building the Team
Self-Awareness and Self-Empowerment
Negotiating Difference and Conflict
Understanding the Dynamics of Change
Race, Class, Culture and the Dynamics of Identity, Power, and Privilege
Leading with Vision for a Just Society
The Roots of a Progressive Faith Tradition
Social Media and Ethical Leadership in the Public Square
