Apply to attend 7-day training with Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition!

Are you a young person (under 30) interested in building a diverse, powerful, youth-led environmental movement in Kentucky? Or do you know folks who fit that description? If so, check out this awesome opportunity to attend an 7-day intensive leadership development camp hosted by the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition.

The training program, called Catalyst, will take place July 26-August 2 at the Life Adventure Center in Versailles, Kentucky. Participants will learn skills to launch and sustain effective campaigns for change on their campuses and in their communities. The program will maintain an emphasis on anti-oppression, inclusion, and relationship-building for the long-haul.

Kentuckians For The Commonwealth is pleased to sponsor up to 10 young people who are also KFTC members to participate in this exciting program. If selected, KFTC will cover your full costs, including lodging, meals and registration. To be part of all that goodness, you’ll need to go through several steps.

1) Fill out this quick application form to KFTC by May 22. You only need to do this if you are a KFTC member and are requesting KFTC's financial support to participate in Catalyst. KFTC will let you know by May 29th if we can sponsor you.

2) Fill out the Catalyst application and get accepted by the program. The early registration deadline to apply is May 20th. KSEC will consider applications submitted after May 20th but before July 1, if there is still space available in the training program. If you apply to Catalyst before you've heard back from KFTC, go ahead and say that your registration costs are being sponsored by KFTC. We'll let you and the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition know by May 29th whether we are actually able to cover your costs.

You can learn much more about the Catalyst training program by visiting the website of the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition.
