The National SEED Project is a peer-led professional development program that creates conversational communities to drive personal, organizational, and societal change toward greater equity and diversity. SEED partners with institutions, organizations, and communities to develop their own SEED seminars -- a group of individuals who meet regularly to learn about themselves, interact with each other across identities, and develop strategies for greater equity and diversity in their local settings.

At SEED New Leaders Week, 50 educators, parents, community leaders, and others are immersed in multicultural SEED materials and methods in preparation for leading SEED seminars in their own schools, organizations, workplaces, and communities.

Should you be accepted, you would be expected to attend one of three similarly structured SEED New Leaders Weeks. You will indicate on your application the location and date of the week you want to attend:

You will also need to name an administrator who will complete the SEED Administrative Support Form on your behalf. They will be sent a link by e-mail to do so once you complete the New Leaders Application.

SEED provides a limited number of scholarships to eligible institutions and nonprofit organizations. Details are available at the application link below.
