About the Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team will support 10 young people ages 14-19 to:

  • Learn about sexual and reproductive health
  • Build their leadership skills and networks
  • Create their own events or campaigns for improving adolescent health in Alamance County

We welcome young leaders who are Black, Hispanic/Latinx, LGBTQIA+, boys/men—and others!

Commitment: From October 2021 until June 2022, the Leadership Team will convene virtually twice per month, for a total of two meetings or workshops (1-2 hours each) every month. Members must commit to the full year.

Stipend: For each meeting/workshop that Leadership Team members attend, they will receive a $25 participation stipend and a $10 data/travel stipend, for a total monthly stipend of $70.

Accessibility: Limited ASL interpretation and childcare may be available. Meetings will be scheduled for day/evening/weekend times based on Leadership Team member availability. We will invite members to share their access needs after they apply. For accessibility questions, contact Tommy White at TWhite@shiftnc.org (habla español).
