League Leader- EmpowerED Network
The Education Trust in Tennessee invites rising 10th graders in high school up to last year of college/university students to apply to form part of the EmpowerED Network Advisory known as League Leaders.

The EmpowerED Network aims to invest in the next generation of student leaders and advocates by equipping them with the necessary tools to connect their personal experiences to issues-based advocacy for educational equity and justice.

The movement to elevate student voice and collective action relies on students taking charge and leading the way! The saying “nothing for us, without us” applies here. The EmpowerED Network will be spearheaded by League Leaders that are willing and ready to take on the responsibility and guide this network of student leaders and advocates.

 Student Advisory Expectations:
- 10-12 hours per month
- Must have morning availability Monday-Thursday during June and July
- Must have late afternoon/early evening weekday availability (occasional Saturdays with advance notice) during the academic year
- Be a current TN student
- Must attend a series of orientation sessions focused on building community amongst the group, reviewing all of the material/content, and receive feedback/reactions on initial plans for the EmpowerED Network
- Must attend monthly planning meetings
- Must have a collaborative mindset and approach to leadership

The EmpowerED Network meetings will take place on the third Tuesday of every month. League Leaders are required to attend all monthly meetings, 2 planning sessions per month, and are responsible for designing a social event every other month (during the academic year).

- Application opens on Wednesday, April 28, 2021
