The Emerging Multicultural Leadership Experience (EMLE) is a learning experience designed to provide emerging professional staff of color the opportunity to further engage and connect to the Y Movement. Participants will become better positioned to grow and thrive at the Y by learning from and connecting with Multi-Team or Branch Leaders and Organizational leaders who are dedicated to educating and mentoring younger staff leading to a deeper engagement with the Y Movement.

Our local/Regional EMLE – REMLE is a two-day experience, modeled after the three-day experience hosted by Y-USA Multicultural Leadership Development. The two-day local experience will offer participants an opportunity to learn critical leadership skills at minimal expense. A local planning team in partnership with Y-USA Multicultural Leadership Development leads the experience.
