2019-20 Emerging Leaders Application

Are You Ready to Become a Leader for Social Change?
Emerging Leaders is a high-quality professional development program that equips individuals working in the nonprofit and public sectors with the management training, leadership development, and confidence to accelerate their careers and enhance their professional contributions. Princeton AlumniCorps manages the Emerging Leaders program, connecting a diverse cohort of participants with the organization's mature network of social change leaders. Emerging Leaders participants engage with program curriculum through sessions facilitated by a highly trained executive coach.
The program is offered in two locations (New York and Washington, DC) and runs for a total of eight full-day sessions that are scheduled between June 2019 to February 2020 Participants must have 3-10 years of total full-time work experience, including at least one year in the nonprofit or public sector. They must also be currently employed in the nonprofit or public sector and have some degree of management responsibilities, including supervising full-time or part-time staff, and interns. Program participants should expect to stay full-time employed during the program's duration.
While this program is managed by Princeton AlumniCorps, alumni from any college or university are welcome to apply. Monthly meetings are held in New York City or Washington, DC, but applicants from surrounding areas are encouraged to apply contingent on their ability to attend in-person meetings. Cohorts are separate, meaning, participants in Washington, DC are not asked to travel to NYC, and vice versa.
We encourage you to explore further by starting this application, watching a brief video about Princeton AlumniCorps' Emerging Leaders program, and emailing Program Associate, Soraia Francisco, at sfrancisco@alumnicorps.org.
