Home > Leadership Training Institute

Leadership isn’t about a title. How you act, what you do, and how you choose to care and make a difference – your ability to inspire, motivate, and energize – that’s what makes you a leader. Built into all our programs and campaigns are opportunities for you to step up and take on a leadership role.

In addition to the leadership opportunities inherent in our other initiatives, NOYS offers several leadership trainings and workshops designed to help you further develop specific skill sets. We want these trainings to be as accessible is possible, so most courses are offered at little to no financial cost to you. We simply ask that, if selected, you commit to showing up, being “all in,” taking some healthy risks, and doing the hard work of trying things you might not be good at (yet!).

Leadership Training Institute tracks: 

  • Authentic Relationships (navigating the unknown)
  • Cause Ambassadors (becoming a trusted spokesperson)
  • Creativity & Flailing (that’s not a typo)
  • Digital Safety (protecting your identity & your reputation)
  • Financial Literacy (work smarter, not harder)
  • Storytelling (having something to lose)
  • Strategic Advocacy (influencing up)
  • Team Leadership & Project Management (different skills, both important)

Registration for the Spring 2019 Leadership Training Institute will open in October 2018.

Because of our commitment to offering as many of our trainings as possible for free, we require applications for each of our leadership tracks, and we routinely have more applicants than spaces available. Don’t let that hold you back. If you’d like to build your skills in any of these areas, apply for a spot and see what happens.

We also encourage you to jump in and participate in any of our other open projects or initiatives. We always have ways for you to get engaged. Involvement in any of our other projects allows you to get to know us and us to get to know you. Show us how you want to grow and learn and make an impact on the world, and we’ll do what we can to help you raise your voice and make it even more powerful.
