Emerging Leaders Program

The Kink Academy Emerging Leaders (EL) program is a leadership development program which enables newer kink/alternative/leather community members from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into community structure, and have an opportunity to serve the community in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to event volunteerism as well as other related organizations.

The EL program kicks off with a webinar in January. Afterward, it grows and develops in an online learning and networking environment for the year.  The program culminates with a poster session presentation to display the results of the project planning work of each group at some national event, preferably the LLC or a Flea or some larger national event.

Participants commit to participating in all aspects of the program.  Participants may be offered an opportunity to serve on a committee, task-force or work-group as well as other groups upon completion of program.  However, appointments are not guaranteed.

The program is limited to no more than 20 participants each year.
