Appy for UNITED SIKHS' Advocacy & Humanitarian Aid Academy, 2016

Washington, DC: After the immense success of the past two Academies 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-11th, 2016 in Washington, DC.
Advocates in the office of Senator Moran.

AHAA is a six-day training program designed for ambitious students and young professionals, 18 years 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 conclude with Advocacy Day on the Hill on July 11th 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 American community.
We will only be selecting 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).
This is an opportunity for chosen applicants to hear from speakers, visit Congressmen on Capitol Hill, and tour monumental sites within Washington, DC. This six-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 their paths in advocacy, law, policy, healthcare,education, and humanitarian aid.
