The application deadline has passed for the 2013 Institute for Leadership Training (DILT).
Selected participants will be notified on Friday, April 5. Up to 12 mentor-mentee pairs will be selected.
The program will commence at Dance/USA's 2013 Annual Conference in Philadelphia, PA to be held June 12-15. Participants will attend a leadership seminar on Wed., June 12, 8 am-4 pm. This will be followed by one-on-one mentoring relationships through December 2013. Both Mentors and Mentees will be awarded a $200 honorarium and $300 towards conference travel for participation in the program.
Supported through generous funding from The American Express Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the program was developed to leverage connections between Dance/USA members and to bolster personal and professional development through one-on-one mentoring relationships. DILT emphasizes regular communication between Mentors and Mentees to foster self-direction, self-reflection, and embracing challenge. The relationships between Mentors and Mentees can extend beyond geographic boundaries, explore various areas of interest, and provide exposure to opportunities available in the field.
