American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute accepting applications
The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute (AMCLI) develops and trains American Muslim leaders who are committed to civic engagement. AMCLI strives to empower these pioneering leaders to realize their full potential, and in doing so, have a more effective and sustained impact on the issues affecting their communities, and America at large.
Participants in the Institute come from a very broad spectrum of backgrounds and professions. Politicians, community leaders, faith leaders, economists and educators have all previously convened at the Institute in order to create stronger ties between different Muslim organizations.During a nine-month program, AMCLI focuses on empowering the individual leaders, improving organizational strategies, and increasing the health, vibrancy, and interconnectedness of the organizations working in this field. Participating in AMCLI provides emerging leaders with renewed energy, greater skills, and a more nuanced analysis of how change happens.
AMCLI's methodology and curriculum focuses on the following areas:
- Identifying leadership needs, human capital gaps, organizational best practices and theological resources on civic engagement in Islam.
- Equipping leaders with practical skills in communication, community mobilization, leadership, policy analysis, advocacy, and organizational management.
- Connecting to a network of civic leaders (Muslim and non- Muslim) across the country and facilitating a forum for constructive intra-Muslim dialogue.
- Guiding the development of projects, partnerships, and resources.
- Sustaining the learning with ongoing opportunities to interact with fellows and alumni.
