SikhLEADers alumni are graduate students at top universities, hold elected positions on their college campuses, have become daring creative minds who sing on American Idol and travel the country to tell the stories of Sikhs in America via Sikh Monologues.

This year’s participants will engage in six days of training spread over two weekends: February 17-20, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA and October 6-9, 2017 in Washington D.C.
