SALDEF Again Training Emerging Leaders

February 16th, 2017
For the sixth consecutive year, SALDEF will be training emerging leaders in the SikhLEAD Leadership Development Program (LDP). Starting this weekend in Los Angeles, we will support 16 diverse, motivated, and entrepreneurial group of young Sikh Americans as they prepare for a lifetime of community leadership.

SALDEF humbly asks for your continued financial support for this unique leadership program that develops the next generation of Sikh American changemakers.

After returning to their communities for the next several months to complete a Community Leadership Project, SikhLEADers will re-convene in Washington, DC in October to further their training.
