Washington, DC - After the immense success of last year's Academy we are bringing the Academy back with more sessions and more opportunity for advocacy than ever before! We are now accepting applications for
UNITED SIKHS Advocacy & Humanitarian Aid Academy (AHAA), being held from July 6th-10th, 2015 in Washington, DC.
AHAA is a five-day training program designed for students and young professionals 17 and older looking to get involved in social justice advocacy for the
Sikh community, relief aid work, or education and healthcare initiatives promoted and pursued by UNITED SIKHS.
This comprehensive training program features workshops conducted by qualified speakers including acclaimed professors, government officials, and advocates.
The training will end with an Advocacy Day on the Hill on July 10th where students will have an opportunity to utilize the advocacy skills they learned
during the training by speaking to Congressmen and Senators about issues faced by the Sikh community.
We will only be accepting eight outstanding, diversely-qualified, young leaders for this program. UNITED SIKHS
will properly equip selected applicants with the skills and resources needed to further their career goals while pursuing "SEVA" (selfless service).
Chosen applicants will have the opportunity to hear from speakers, visit Congressmen on Capitol Hill, and tour monumental sites within Washington, DC. This five-day,
all-inclusive training experience will be granted to chosen applicants for $350 which includes hotel, Wi-Fi, conference room access, breakfast, lunch and transportation to meeting sites and tours.
Through completion of AHAA training, an Academy graduate will receive certification, training materials, and the skills necessary to fulfill paths in advocacy,
law, policy, healthcare, education, and humanitarian aid.
