New Leaders Project Camp

The New Leaders Project is an exciting part of EqualityMaine’s youth initiative to improve the climate for LGBTQ+ youth by providing leadership skills, community building, and self-empowerment. Our leadership program is for LGBTQ+ young people and allies who want to work alongside other young leaders from across Maine. Participants will learn interpersonal communication, LGBTQ+ history, self-empowerment, leadership, and more. The young people who have completed this program have since applied these skills both in their schools and in our work at EqualityMaine through public speaking, event planning, and presenting at conferences. 

The 2021 New Leaders Project summer camp was held at St. Joseph’s College in Standish and was a huge success with nearly 50 campers, age 11-17  from all across Maine, particpating for free. We look forward to our next camp during the summer of 2022. Applications will open in the spring of 2022.
