Emerging Leaders

A core mission of 21Wilberforce is to mobilize the next generation of emerging leaders to join our work for international religious freedom. Our flagship semester-long associate internship program has trained dozens of young leaders to be effective advocates and given them a chance to have a real impact for persecuted communities. We also host several training events for young leaders interested in promoting and protecting international religious freedom.
