The Young Democrats of America are excited to announce our inaugural Faith and Values Leadership Summit, which will take place March 23-25, 2012 in Washington, DC. The goal of the Summit is to develop a group of committed young Democrats eager and ready to lead at the intersection of faith and politics and redefine the political conversation around values for the Millennial generation. This groundbreaking gathering will bring together 100 young leaders from across the country for an action-packed weekend of political training, leadership development and community building led by top national experts in the field of faith and politics.
Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 35. There is no registration fee for the Summit. To apply, fill out this short survey and send a one-page resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will select participants based on their leadership qualifications and their commitment to Democratic faith outreach. The application will be open until 5pm EST February 15, 2012 and all applicants will be notified whether or not they are accepted by 5pm EST on February 22, 2012. Take a look at the Faith and Values Leadership Summit page on our website for more information.
The Faith and Values Leadership Summit is part of the YDA Faith and Values Initiative, which kicked off in October 2011. Over the past four months we have built a strong team and run a number of high-profile events on faith and values with key Democratic leaders.
