Sidak Leadership Program is a unique two-week experiential and educational experience that brings Sikhs from diverse backgrounds together to learn with and from one another. Sidak promotes the concepts and skills needed to be a life-long learner, not just in leadership but in life. This Program will be a “game-changer” in the life of the participants.

To offer Sidak Leadership Program fee-free again, we appeal to you to support this Sikh youth. On average, it costs about $1,000 to sponsor one student. Each donation is valued in bringing Sikhi closer to our community. 

You have a unique opportunity to provide 18-39 Sikh adults a chance to attend the two-week immersion program, which combines Surat (awareness) and Ruh (spirit). These two are equally important and balanced in the program as participants journey towards becoming Guru-centered. 

The participants will engage in many activities, including organizing a cohort group, presenting group thoughts and ideas, leading a discussion on a given topic, listening to content delivery, and expressing new solutions to old problems. 

Three offered tracks are designed through the lens of bani (wisdom), tvarikh (history), and rahit (lifestyle) and serve as the foundation for Sidak. Our instructors and facilitators bring their experiences, education, and passions to the classroom. This unique learning opportunity will help young adults better connect to their inner-self, build stronger relationships, and infuse the Sikh spirit in their future goals and endeavors.
