Leadership Development

We focus on leadership development at the Consortium, and we do this three ways:

Internship Program
The Consortium hosts 8 to 12 interns per year from colleges and universities across the country. Our internship program provides emerging leaders an opportunity to network, develop hands on skills, and impact their communities through social justice work.

Girls Rock! the Capitol
We host an annual leadership and civic engagement program for girls ages 13-18 called Girls Rock! the Capitol. This event is an opportunity for girls to learn about state government, how to debate issues, and have their voices heard by public officials. We reach an average of 60 girls a year through this program and plan to expand by hosting Girls Rock! City Hall and Girls Rock! the County Commission.

Organizational & Professional Development
We host a number of workshops that help staff and volunteers from our member organizations build and refine their leadership skills in fundraising, media representation, conflict resolution, and more.
