- An educational and leadership development program to learn about careers in policy-making as well as engaging with subject-matter experts across the District of Columbia across working sectors.
- In December, students will attend the Victory Institute’s annual International LGBTQ Leaders Conference for three days of training, skills building, networking, and discussion alongside hundreds of openly LGBTQ leaders in government, politics, advocacy, business, and community organizations.
