In almost any state, you can be sure to find civic leadership projects for Jewish, Hispanic and other groups that focus on civic leadership development for their communities. Yet the same cannot be said for the Georgia Muslim community, until now.
An initiative of the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta (ISB), the Institute for Muslim Civic Leadership (IMCL) is the first of its kind for the Georgia Muslim community.
In a span of one full Saturday per month for nine months, IMCL participants aged 25 – 40 will train in leadership modules such as Local Government, Communicating Effectively, Building Communities Through Collaboration, and Managing Conflict. These will feature guest speakers who are industry thought-leaders and practitioners. In addition, there will be group projects for participants to implement their training and newfound resources.
Deadline to apply is August 10th, 2018. To learn more about IMCL, the application process, and fees, http://isbatlanta.org/imcl/.
