Apply for the San Diego Leadership Alliance Institute

The SDLA Insti­tute is a pro­gram that equips Fel­lows with the skills, oppor­tu­ni­ties, and rela­tion­ships to make change in San Diego.

The train­ing pro­grams focuses on a core cur­ricu­lum of per­sonal lead­er­ship devel­op­ment, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, fund rais­ing, polit­i­cal strat­egy, tra­di­tional and new media, and pub­lic speak­ing. The Fel­lows also orga­nize a fundraiser to put into prac­tice their orga­niz­ing skills, and to help fund the next year’s class.

The SDLA Insti­tute spans 10 full days on week­ends between Jan­u­ary and June, usu­ally on Saturdays.

The pro­gram is designed to pro­vide Fel­lows with the tools they need to take the next step in their careers. The train­ing pro­gram is rel­e­vant to Fel­lows who work inside and out­side of pol­i­tics, with an empha­sis on prepar­ing young peo­ple to be engaged in civic life through­out their careers.

Fel­lows spend time meet­ing with local lead­ers from across sec­tors, includ­ing through pair­ings with career mentors.
