Application for 20/30 Project Young Adult Leaders
Call To Action’s 20/30 Project for Mentoring and Leadership aims to cultivate young leaders who hold and live in Catholicism’s paradox. Recognizing that our faith is the source of holy, unique, and revolutionary potential for personal and common good and at the same time is the source of unreconciled (and often unacknowledged) oppression and injustice, specifically for LGBTQ people; people of color, women, and lay people throughout the world.

This new program brings together visionaries and change-makers across the country to support and inspire one another as part of a cohort, each discerning and initiating a project that puts faith into action for social justice. Each Young Leader will be paired with a mentor to accompany them as they explore how their Catholic faith and personal gifts and passions intersect with the social needs around them.

Young Leaders in this cohort will:
- Connect with an inspiring and supportive community of peers across the country
- Receive mentorship from an elder in the movement
- Participate in a 3-day retreat in Minneapolis and CTA’s National Conference in San Antonio, TX, all travel and lodging expenses paid
- Be part of a national movement working to transform the Church and the world
- Receive a $600 stipend

The Retreat: May 17-19, Minneapolis, MN
This is where the Young Leader Cohort will gather for the first time and start scheming and dreaming about projects! You’ll connect with like-minded young Catholics, explore Catholic social teaching, analyze dominant power structures, study methods of social change and practice contemplation and action.

The Project: May-Nov
Over this 6-month period you’ll put your faith into action, developing a project you’re passionate about related to Catholicism and social justice in your local context! Don’t worry, you’ll have lots of support with monthly mentor check-ins and video calls with your cohort and the Program Coordinator. For projects that require more resources, Call to Action will help connect you with a network of donors and volunteers eager to support meaningful action.

The Reconvening: November 9-11 San Antonio, TX
The Young Leader Cohort will reconvene at Call to Action’s 2018 National Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Here you’ll share your learnings and efforts from the past six months with your fellow Young Leaders and the broader Call to Action community. You’ll plug into an even wider network of like-minded Catholic change-makers to continue deepening and expanding your faith-rooted justice work.

Be between age 20 and 39
