Applications are now being accepted for the 2021 Dr. Harry & Alice Statland Leadership Institute (SLI). The program is open to young Jewish professionals who are looking to explore their Jewish identity, develop their leadership skills and connect with the Jewish community in a meaningful way.
A collaborative effort between Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City and TribeKC, SLI is a concentrated, six-month program. It offers participants the opportunity to work through the steps of becoming a Jewish leader, from breaking down barriers, to getting involved, to taking action and building a community that is represented by all generations.
“Statland showed me I was part of a community I knew existed but hadn’t yet found. Statland helped me leverage my personal experiences to create an authentic and empathetic leadership style which has made me proud to be who I am,” said Skylar Brennan, a 2020 SLI participant.
