Full course description
NEW Leadership Idaho is a network partner of NEW Leadership, a national nonpartisan college students’ public leadership training program addressing women’s underrepresentation in politics. This week-long program hosted at Boise State University provides college students from across Idaho with the opportunity to come together to network and participate in forums that are essential to encouraging young talent to pursue careers in the public sphere. During the program, students will learn about the important role that politics plays in their lives, study leadership skills applicable in both public and private sector positions, and connect with other students and community members dedicated to making a difference in their communities. Students have the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from many of Idaho's local and state public officials, community, and private sector leaders through field activities, panel discussions, workshops, a policy simulation at the Idaho Capitol, and prominent guest speaker forums.
